This Is The Only Place I Feel "normal!"

I am two years post op from a complete abdominal hysterectomy and was on Estradiol. I stopped it after reading about the negative reports on HRT. I suffer from mood swings, hot flashes and vaginal and pubic skin dryness. I am already on other meds so herbal or alternative therapy isn't an option. i take accupril for blood pressure, along with a water pill and a potassium supplement; prilosec for gastric reflux; klonopin for anxiety/panic attacks; prozac for depression, lescol for cholesterol, zyrtec for allergies and darvocett as i have six bulging disks. i have xanax to use as needed. like i need any more meds!

i also noticed since my surgery that when i have sex and i reach orgasm the contractions are barely noticeable. that depresses me more. i just don't feel the intensity and thought for sure after two years i would.

thank you for listening and have a great holiday season. may there be peace on earth :-)

Thank You Cynthia!

I was wanting HRT until I started reading all the negatives. I will check out the page you recommended. I restarted the Estradiol for now as my symptoms are out of control.
