need for hrt

My surgery was 8 years ago and I used a low dose HRT patch for 1 year to facilitate healing. I had a complete hysterectomy, no ovaries left. Would a natural , non chemical hormone therapy be beneficial to my health? I've never had much trouble except for weight gain even though I am fairly active. Thanks.

Re: need for hrt

I would not take any hormones unless I was showing estrogen loss with having hot flashes and such. You can take calcium plus D for bone density. They don't really prescribe estrogen for the heart , as it can cause some side effects like stroke and blood clots in some people. I would talk to the doctor if you are having symptoms that make your life difficult and affect your quality of life.

I had hot flashes pretty severe and could not sleep. I took estrogen for several years and now I am off. I wonder about the risks. My mom died of cancer and was on hormones from age 27 to 57. She had a complete hysterectomy with ovaries removed.

I believe if you are miserable and your doctor says it is okay then take them. I think we have to weigh the
risks and do what is right for us personally.
