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?
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.
