    Hysteroctomy 10 years ago!
    An_252316 posted:
    I had a hysterectomy 10 years ago. Chose not to do any hormone replacement. I still get very hot in the day and my head sweats horribly at night. I didn't sweat for a number of years at night, now all of the sudden it makes my whole pillow wet. It seems my concentration isn't as good as it used to be also. What can I do to make this stop?
    georgiagail responded:
    Have you discussed the different choices for hormone replacement therapy with your physician that would address these specific symptoms? There are a wide number of choices available now.

    I take daily Tibolona 2,5 mg that my doctor gave me, since beggining of January 2013, and it really made my hot flashes disappear, my vaginal lubrication came back, and I feel much better. It is a synthetic hormone, and it really works. I am in Argentina, ther may be a slight change on the name of the drug. Good luck with it.
    Myrmaid replied to clau0106diaArgentina's response:
    How old are you and does this medicine make you bleed?
    clau0106diaArgentina replied to Myrmaid's response:
    I am 54, and it does not make me bleed at all.
