estrogen crash/ depletion- how long?

can anyone answer how long after both ovaries with hysterectomy does it take until all estrogen levels are depleted?? I read that we still store some estrogen in our fat cells???

I don't think there is one right answer to that question. Everyone is different.

Yes, estrogen can be stored in fact cells.

Re: estrogen crash/depletion-how long?

I had been in menopause for two years before having to have my TLAVH w/BSO. I had been on ctivella....tiny amount to calm the hot flashes and was told to continue till my follow up. I completely crashed around two weeks post op! Crying, inconsolable, furious, just plain nuts and I had hemmoraghic cystitis that just added toit. After much patient cajoling my DH took me to the ED where they got me calmed down and treated the bladder infection. (WBC=14000).....Had 3 week follow up the next Thursday and was told "this is what we see when estrogen bottoms out".......so ladies if you feel your teeth are starting to clench....irritability is off the roof or anything that makes you realize you are feeling emotionally off kilter....Please don't ignore it.....I am mellow by nature and that was just a hideous experience. HUGS to you all

Re: estrogen crash/depletion-how long?

I was put on a patch the day after my surgery. My doctor said it can be quite sudden when the ovaries are removed. After reading this forum non-stop for the last month, it seems to vary quite a bit and it's common for even the ladies who kept their ovaries to have at least temporary symptoms within a few weeks of surgery.

Re: estrogen crash/depletion-how long?

I was about 3 weeks post op when it happened to me. One minute I was raging the next I was crying. It was a horrible experience. I started taking estrogel about a week ago at 6 weeks post op. Its helping some but I still need to find the right balance. Some days I am okay others like tonight I am feeling very irritable and just plain blah, no motivation for anything which is very unlike me.

Re: estrogen crash/depletion-how long?

I have been 9 years and the crash is happening to me now. I am feeling anxiety, panic attacks, extreme anger, crying and going to the doctor tomorrow. This is awful. I did a saliva test to see what is going on and will find out the results tomorrow. Hugs, I feel for you.

Hi Hoops40,

Its a horrible feeling to have all of that going on. I also go to my doctor tomorrow to try to figure out something with these hormones. I hope they can get everything figured out for you soon and you start feeling better.

Talking - estrogen crash/ depletion- how long? Re: estrogen crash/depletion-how long?

I am happy to report that the 1mg Estrace that I was prescribed in week 3 has worked wonders! Within a week my hot flashes were pretty much gone and I felt relatively emotionally normal. Just an occasional, short lived weepiness. My 6 week checkup is next week and I plan to ask for a testosterone level and recheck on my thyroid to get completely balanced. I'm still having low energy, but that is increasing too day by day. Yea for time and recovery!!! Hang in there ladies....your balance will return.
