Hello, I am new here but a bit confused on the hormone supplementation.. I am two weeks out from having surgery to remove a 20 cm ovarian cyst and my right ovary. I am now experiencing hot flashes again and sleepless nights dryness etc. I am a young 55 and went through the menopause experience at 52. I supplemented with a testosterone pellet in November and it helped the low libido dryness etc. I am concerned however if the testosterone pellet made my ovarian cyst grow so large and so fast. My doctor said that it would not do that. My Dr gave me the miniville patch to try on my followup visit with him and asked me about my symptoms. I only have one ovary now so I was ok with giving it a try. When I went home I did my research and found information that estrogen has some pretty bad symptoms.I am now not so sure I want to supplement with estrogen after reading the experiences of other women on it. I still have one ovary and a uterus. I have fibroids and worried the estrogen will make them grow. I also would like the benefits of balanced hormones. Any one have good experiences with alternatives to estrogen patch? Anyone have experience with testosterone pellet
