Thank you in advance...

I get it! I had all those symptoms and many more after a hysterectomy - worst day of my life! I became suicidal - never had depression before. Estrogen cured my depression and helped all my other symptoms although I'm still not the vibrant, outgoing, sexual person I was before my hysterectomy. Are you considering HRT?
