I've been very lucky not to have many 'pimples', but for about 2 weeks now (I'm 4 weeks post op now) I've been developing lots of pimples!! I kept my ovaries, but I'm wondering if they are going crazy on me anyways. I don't have any kind of stress going on.

I'm the same way. I never really had a problem with pimples except during PMS. About four weeks after my TAH I started to get a few on my chin- just like with PMS. Nothing major - just enough for me to notice.

I've heard that we still get PMS so I just attributed my teen-age appearance to that. They're gone now - I'm almost 7 weeks post-op. Perhaps they'll be coming back in a week or so.

This rang a bell....

I'm not there yet, but when I read your post I thought of something I read yesterday from The Survivor's Guide to Surgical Menopause (I know you kept your ovaries, but I'm sure your hormonal levels were/are affected....)

Here's the quotation from the section on symptoms of excess testosterone:

"Changes caused by testosterone often mimic those of adolescence (try to hold the jokes down to a low roar, ladies). Greasy skin and hair and acne or pimples may be the first signs you see of a high testosterone level."

Survivor's Guide to Surgical Menopause

Just a thought... your mileage may vary

Thanks....But just a quick thought....if my testosterone level is up, shouldn't my sex drive also be? ;-) My husband wishes for that...

Thanks for the quote!

Excess, or elevated? And how much will it take for libido?!?!?!
*That* is the question
