I had a hysterectomy at the age of 44. The day after surgery I was put on estrogen and had been on it for 37 years, but several of my doctors felt it was time to go off of it. Have been off of it for 2 years now and have noticed changes in my body - hair loss, increased anxiety, bone problems, hot flashes. Wish I were still on it.

Have you talked to your doctor about starting back on it? There are some inexpensive options out there if insurance won't cover it.
