New to HRT

Just found out I have to have my ovaries removed due to complications of endo/cysts that are growing big. I had a hysterectomy last summer. Ugh! Anyways, I am 43 and trying to navigate through the menopausal maze for the first time, earlier then I ever thought......

I am wondering what meds (or natural meds) work for women out there. My doctor is talking about the "patch" and of course standard medications. I am going to research bio-identical HRT meds as well. I saw your list of books. The one from Uzzi Reiss looks good on Natural Hormone Balance.

It would appear a couple of women like the "estrotest" as well. I am scared to death what this will do to my quality of life. But I brave it as many of us do.

Does anyone know what HRT does to your thyroid? I am on Armour and a little bit of t3 Cytomel. I feel great too!

And thanks for this site!

I have taken a Estratest (or a generic) for nearly eight years and have found nothing about it to be the least bit scary. In the USA, drugs are very well-tested and this one has been around for decades. If it was causing users harm I think we would have heard about it long ago.

I hope that in partnership with your doctor you find the HRT regimen that turns out to be the best one for you. There's lots of products out there; through the years millions of women have benefited from using them.
