Re: How do you increase your estrogen?

The only way 'I know of to increase your estrogen is to take estrogen via a perscription. I use the vivelle dot patch.
Did your Dr. not talk to you about estrogen replacement before or even at your postop appointments?

Re: How do you increase your estrogen?

The gynacologist didn't at our post op visit, he released me to my family doctor and he hasn't said a word either. The only thing I tried was HRT and it didn't do anything, so I went off of it about 3 months ago.

All I know is my body is aching and I can't shake this weight gain. no matter what I do, it just keeps going up.

Do you walk about 4MPH for an hour a day, 6 or 7 days a week?
Do you log all of your foods to make sure you are not eating, foods that are processed, have too many fats, sugars, and sodium?

ERT=Estrogen Replacement Therapy

HRT=Hormone Replacement Therapy

If you are using ERT that would be estrogen only. HRT could include estrogen plus progesterone and/or testosterone.

Yes. In fact, you can only receive it with a doctor's prescription.

Re: How do you increase your estrogen?

This must explain why I now have a pooch tummy (or muffin top that I've seen some say) and my hips and butt are also growing.

Why wouldn't a doctor say something to a woman about her options. The only one that was offered was HRT?
