Hello. I am 48 and had a TOTAL hysterectomy back in 2012. They removed everything, I have nothing left due to heavy periods causing severe anemia, endometriosis, etc. My ovaries were "chocolate" meaning they were very diseased. I feel so much better now with no periods. Post surgery, my OBYN gave me samples of HRT cream/patches because I was to enter menopause instantly...and I took them home with me and even used them for a few days...until I began reading side effects. I quit taking ASAP. My question is...I have not taken ANY hormones of any sort (HRT or bio identical). I have a face flash occasionally and noticed that my hair has gotten a just bit thinner. Do i NEED to begin taking estrogen/progestorone...both or what? I do not want synthetic HRT but would appreciate some advisement. I inquired about BIO IDENTICALS but they are SO expensive. I have not been tested because when i asked my OBGYN if i should get tested, they told me that my levels are going to be low because all has been removed.
Should I just keep on not taking anything? Any suggestions?
