I am 47 and am waiting to have a hysterectomy (removal of everything).
I've tried to do lots of research into pros and cons...of taking HRT and it's a minefield! My SIster had a hysterectomy 2 years ago and has piled on the weight and so have other people I know that are on HRT. I'm thinking that I'd like to do down the natural route ie: try to get as much natural oestrogen from things like flaxseed etc and maybe natural supplements... I'm fit and healthy, I do lots of strength training to keep my bones strong and have a good diet, I don't smoke but do enjoy a glass of wine at the weekend. if I were to go on HRT do you not have to come off it at some point anyway...so wouldn't I go through the menopause anyway?! Something I don't want...I'd rather go through it now rather than postpone it. Any advice would be gratefully received - thank you in advance
