What about pig thyroid hormone for a person who's thyroid was removed? I've been on synthroid for 3 years after having my thyroid removed. I also had my uterus removed 6 years ago. I'm still tired And the weight gain isn't diminishing. My quality of life is so affected and it's depressing.

She doesn't say why you MIGHT want the progesterone she brought up. And she's not saying what you might want to do after hysterectomy / or hysterectomy plus loss of overies etc, there are I think {not sure}, differences.

Can bioidenticals cause spikes in blood pressure like birth control pills?

Bio identical helped. But also caused my fibroid. From too much estrogen. Possibly osteoporosis and gallstones. But I'm not going off them! I'm have serious anxiety. And more.... so I'm goung to increase iodine to remove too much estrogen.

Thank you SO MUCH for addressing Premarin, made from the urine of impregnated mares. In addition to the health hazards of taking Premarin, the impregnated mares that are housed to make this highly lucrative drug, live horrific lives and are treated like machines.

You're so right. Please take it a step further, and go vegan. In this day and age, we have no need to torture/kill animals for their flesh/secretions/furs/feathers/skins. Learn more: www.absolutevegan.org

I was put on Premarin after my total hysterectomy. I went straight to the ER....the migraine was so bad. The same happened when I took natural Progesterone cream. Im 52 now and so scared of taking anything?

Glynis R Ive started taking 1 Tbsp of flax/linseed and 1 Tbsp of chia seeds and my hot flushes stopped very quickly and my hair has gone back to being lucious and silky again. These seeds are packed with nutrients and vitamins that balance hormones and also Omega 3 fatty acids. You must buy the flax seeds whole and grind them fresh. I have minè in smoothies, sprinked on salads or mixed in yogurt with honey as a dessert. And the chia seeds I soak in water for at least half hour or have for breakfast as overnight oats soaked with oats in milk/water and 3 dates. My skin has also become smooth and supple from using etra virgin raw coconut oil as a moisteriser morning and night.

What if Im post menopausal. Im 52 and had my total hysterectomy when I was 42 what are the chances of cancer and HRT?

Very comprehensive information. Although I disagree with Plant and human evolution. Humans 15-20k years max & plants-millions of years

Premarin is made through horrific horse abuse. The horses are kept 24/7 in a stall . Constantly pregnant with urine bags attached between their legs where painful sores develop. Once they give birth the fowl is taken and slaughtered. The female is impregnated again. And again till she is no longer of use and is slaughtered. The horses never walk. Never see daylight. Never see grass. It is something that should never have come to be and it is of no real benefit to women.

I wish EVERYONE would reconsider using any cruel products. Someone with time and patience should start a movement/petition and go to the courts with it.

You're right - it's horrific and unethical. But so is consuming the flesh/secretions of animals in this day and age - we have zero need to do so. Learn more: absolutevegan.org

Just like cows then, think of it next time if you eat dairy products or drink milk that's meant for a calf. Terrible business 😰

I could go on and on about how bioidentical hormones have saved me. ;)

I've been taking bioidenticals for two years. They have made some differences. But I too am still experiencing itchy skin. Every body is different, so its crucial to maybe keep a journal to see what might be causing your itchy skin? Plus as we age we may be depleating our D3, B12, Magnesium, so supplimenting can help.
