Do you need hormone replacement therapy after having your uterus removed? Do you still have periods? Is your sex drive diminished?

I can’t have hormone replacement therapy as my cancer is HIGHLY estrogen
positive so I have had to just deal with the hot flashes/menopause sympto=
ms.
To be honest, they haven’t been that bad really. No, I no longer have
periods as my ovaries, uterus, tubes are all gone. My sex drive has not
really diminished but I do know of some women who have had the same thing
done and have had a diminished drive. =0D

I had a complete hysterectomy …ect…I chose not to have hormone replacement, and I do get really bad night sweats and flashes. I learn to deal with it as much as possible. As far as the drive, I think mine has diminished a bit, not all together I still want it, but I don’t start it like I used too. If that makes sense. :slight_smile: Take Care of You, Nik
