Re: Just started Estradiol, I'm scared to death!!!

Ok I don't know why I didn't post!! I am about 8 years post hysterectomy and 4 years post ovary removal. I did not take hormones at first because I felt great, no symptoms and was less irritable. Well the past year my body has decided I am NOT ok and started with, well not hot flashes, but I am always warm and sweat buckets whenever I do ANYTHING!! My doctor said it was time to try HRT. I started Estradiol this week but I am secretly scared to death about it. I knew someone how took HRT, developed breast cancer and died and I do not want this to happen to me. I am told I can stop these any time and I willl be closely monitored with mammograms and blood tests. Am I crazy?? Is it wrong that I kinda just want to continue sweating and not take these pills??? This is starting to affect my marriage, my husband likes to be close when we are together and I get so sweaty I don't want to be touched.

Someone tell me these pills will make me feel better and I will want to be near my husband again!!!!!

Re: Just started Estradiol, I'm scared to death!!!

Oh, I'm sorry you're so stressed! I still have my ovaries (for a few more weeks. I will have surgery to remove them end of Dec) but they went totally to sleep after my hysterectomy in April. I had insane sweating! I didn't know my body could do that! HA! Anyway, with a very low dose of Estradiol I had such great results. Do some reading to ease your mind, but you will be able to feel much better with just a little bit and will not increase your cancer risk. I look at it this way, the stress you're experiencing now is much worse for your body than a small amount of bio-identical hormones.

Take care! Hope you get some relief soon!
