Complete hysterectomy New Year's Eve 2006. Was on HRT and finally got regulated but was told should not be on more than 6 years. (I am in 50s now 40s when I started.) weaned myself off HRT after 7 years so no Meds yeah! BUT..still serious hot flashes which are unbearable and embarrassing. When will it stop or can I take hurt again? I still work as many of my women friends do. It's not like our moms days....take it again or suffer? Thoughts?

ps..just learned I'm going to be a grandma and need to be chill while excited!! Lol

    Hi. I also had hysterectomy and oophorectomy last year age 40. I've been told I'll be on higher dose to 50. Low dose to 60. I'm hoping Gp in future will stick to that!!

    Congratulations on being a grandma.

    There are other meds for hotflushes I took Clonidine which worked but it made me too tired. Also natural things black cohosh, wild yam etc

    If hot flashes are your only issues then I would go to a reputable alternative health therapist that specializes in these issues. I am sure that there are a few things other than hrt that you could try.

    I have been on hrt for five years now and dread my GP telling me to come off of it.

    I've been on HRT since 1991 apart from a short break last year. If it suits you and gives you a better quality of life then I see no reason you shouldn't still take it. Go back to your GP or see a more sympathetic one.
