Perimenopause and pain
LoriRae posted:
I am in Perimenopause at 47...C-section at 26 and had my tubes tied at 40. the pain is extreme! my doctor does not have any suggestions for the pain except ponstel (pain med). I do not want to do hystorectomy. My mood and hot flashes and so on are there but not unbearable. any suggest a HRT? Please help!

HRT is an individual decision but it would seem to be worth a try since you're suffering so. Of course, it's not likely to help the pain. Sometimes tubals can cause problems including pain. Do you only have pain during your period? Any excessive bleeding?

I've been suffering since a hysterectomy and HRT is my "drug of choice" - can't imagine life without it and have no plans to ever stop taking it. But since I don't have ovaries, I find it a necessity. Now if I could only get a uterus transplant to restore my orgasmic ability (and maybe my libido too), maybe I wouldn't regret this every stinkin' day!
