IMHO I would wait on the testosterone and see how you do with the estrogen. Than, after you recover from surgery, giving it some time, have your testosterone and free testosterone levels tested. No libido doesn't necessarily mean low testosterone. All the hormones work in harmony. Do keep in mind once something is implanted you may need to wait for it to wear off if it's not right for you. Some symptoms of too much testosterone can be irreversible.

Best wishes on your upcoming surgery.

Hi there I am now 40 and I had my total hysrer at 23 years old I have been on testosterone and estrodol implants ever since the op all those years ago and they are the best thing since jam donuts I would really recommend them . You feel just the same as before the op but better and you only have them every 6 months and you can forget them . It's only since being off implants for a year and a half as the testrone was out of stock that my problems have started .

Looking forward to next week when I have them put in again
All the best eastwater

I have never heard of a testosterone implant but I use androgel packets every day as I had ZERO testosterone when checked. I like that I can stop it when I want to in case something developed that I didn't like.

I have both implants which are brilliant!
The only down side is sometimes they don't always last 6 months so request blood test before you are due for your next one
Best of luck cherryb78

Re: young and due to be put on hrt + testosterone implant

I've had pellet implants for the past 7 1/2 years. Used to need estradiol (bio-identical) pellets too, but blood work during past 1 1/2 years showed I no longer needed estradiol. I still receive testosterone pellets every 3-4 months. That aside, I have a long history with bio-identical pellet implants! They are a God-send is all I (and my boyfriend) can say! I always have blood work done to test free testosterone level before getting new implants. I can always tell when I'm low and the difference is nothing short of a miracle.

Btw... depending on where you get your blood work done, it can be incredibly expensive or very reasonable! I never have my doctors office do it - they are more expensive!
