Harmone question???

This my first post so I may be in the wrong place, however, I am here because of the weird medical and drug history I have. I had 4 surgeries in a three year period including my tvh (with endo covering everything. I was put on Estratest (the light green pill). and even though I still had hot flashes, the libido was outstanding. Then after two months my gyno change me to the dark green Estratest and although the body works great, the libido or mind just hasn't been into it at all. My gyno retired and I had to start over with another doctor who added estragen (patches), which they found after about 9 months hadn't done anything - apparently my body won't absorb estragen through the skin so they added Estradiol, another disappointment. No change. Anybody have any ideas of combinations that get the mind and body working together in the romance area
Thanks. Katie

Hi Katie,

It is quite an ordeal trying to find the right balance in the Hormone Jungle. Most women here do well on Estatest. It has some testosterone in it a believe.
Testosterone has been shown to help with the libido and adds energy too!
There is an article at http://www.hormonejungle.com/test.php where you can find some info on using testosterone.
Talk to your doctor about adding something that would help with all of your symptoms.
Good luck in finding something that works for you!
