No Sexual Desire

Help Girls!
I am one year post-op from a TVH and am taking Estrace1mg. I have absolutely no desire for sex & it is driving my husband crazy.
Before surgery I would have considered myself normal in this area, but now, it's all gone!
I am also having problems with depression, lack of energy, sleeplessness, and dry skin.
Can anyone please help?
Thanks,
Flying Free

Was there too...

Hi Flying, I am now taking Estratest full strength. I was on Premarin after surg. then six months later with low libido dd put me on Estratest half strength and about a month ago, because I had lack of energy and the libido was not where I thought it should be, I got put on full strength Estratest. I love it:inlove: It has made a world of difference, I have more energy, and feel more in the mood I have also been having some sexual dreams, something I have not had in a long time No side effects yet, did not have any on the half strength. This has helped me. A lot of the ladies here use the testosterone cream but a pharmacy that does the compounding is in another city so I go this route. Hope you find something that helps you. I also take Prometrium every other nite, it seems to help balance things and I feel it makes me sleep better. Debbie

No Sexual Desire

Something i have discovered over the last year is, even if you have adequate testosterone supplies (i do without supplementation), if your estrogen is to low, sex drive can go right out the door. When i was in the process of changing delivery systems (out of ignorance) i let my estrogen levels drop way to low. Hair got dry again, thinning and even started getting bald spot All my energy dropped off (talk about chronic fatigue syndrome), i hurt all over even feet (talk about fibromalaysia), very dry skin, couldn't sleep, nervousness and got back into having those little brain conversations with myself, dry eyes with vision changes. Some of the symptoms you are describing. Anyway, no sex drive and vaginal area started shrinking with no sensation or drive.

Well, as i got levels back up (slowly) all of that started going away and sex drive started coming back. I had to use vagifem for awhile again until estrogen levels got back up, which i think can help bring back sensation to that area and help with shrinkage. So i think estrogen plays a big role in sex drive as well as testosterone. It may help to have your levels checked to see if you are in the ball park. It may be your estrogen is really on the low side. I also fell into that awful depression, didn't want to be a part of life. I am doing much better.

It could be the oral is not the correct delivery system for you and maybe a patch or creams would work better. Or perhaps adding a little more Estrace if you are overall pleased with it. And again you may need to supplement w T. But dont give up, keep at it, and you will get it. That depression and not wanting to be involved in life is a yucky place to be. My cousin uses a .1 estrace in morning and one at night. Of course, i have no idea what you need, but with your docs. help you will find it... Good luck, and tell dh just keep patient your working on it. My dh has heard that more that once
