Getting ovaries out - HRT?

Hi - I am 39 And I am getting my ovaries out due to pain they are causing, plus endo and scar tissue. Already had a Hysterectomy back on 2003, I know my doc want to put me on HRT, I just don't know what kind is the best. i would like to meet with her armed. I had endo cancer but it was contained in the uterus and she said it is okay to have estrogen with that type of cancer. I just don't know about the other types of hormones I will need. Any help or advice would help Thank you in advance.

Re: Getting ovaries out - HRT?

Hi, I can only speak for myself, as every woman seems to respond so differently to surgical menopause! I am 51 and was already menopausal at the time of my surgery. But one thing I learned for sure was that my old ovaries must still have been producing some hormones because the removal of them put me right back into menopause, and this time with a vengeance! For me personally, estrogen in the form of a patch was not enough to combat the anxiety, fatigue, depression and weight gain that really kicked in about 12-14 weeks post-op. After consulting a specialist I opted for hormone pellet insertion that included both estrogen and testosterone. While waiting for the blood test results ( required by my dr before pellet insertion) he gave me a testosterone shot. Immediately I felt unbelievably better--primarily in the form of more consistent energy, less anxiety and a general lifting of the depression. 2 weeks later I had the pellets inserted and it has been really a life saver. These hormones can also be administered via a compounded cream for those that are uncomfortable with the pellets. But again, many women do great on just estrogen alone, or even no hrt at all. Unfortunately, my experience is that the initial period after surgery is not the time to start tinkering with hrt as your body will need to use up it's own supply first before you will be able to determine how you will feel long term. Good luck! You will find lots of great advice here as you deal without the surgery.
