Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
After your hysterectomy you no longer need progesterone which helps alot
Progesterone is what is responsible for your mood issues. You dont need it any more as its only used to protect the uterine lining from overgrowth and cancer.
you will be able to use just estrogen.
I would suggest a patch, since it gives you a steady state in the blood stream and is not metabolized by the liver
In the UK you have available Evorel patches
Starting with the 100 dose right after surgery is a good choice, eventually with the goal of getting to 50
Most women do not need testosterone. It is primarily used for low sex drive and fatigue. That being said, it doesnt work very well and has some side effects. Few women like it and benefit from it. I would wait on that.
I hope this helps
Thank you it has helped a lot. I have my hysterectomy BSO on the 20th October. I am still taking climigest and will be on my oestrogen part of my Climigest 1mg until then. Can I continue to take my Climigest until my operation day, as I do not want to stop as I feel better on the oestrogen part of climigest. Then start on Evorel 100 after my hysterectomy
Yes, I would stay on the estrogen only part of it. Skip the progesterone completely
Good luck with surgery.
