Hysterectomy And Estroven

Dr N:

I am a 50 year old diabetic (insulin dependent) woman who had a hysterectomy 9 years ago. I stopped taking Estrogen 6 months ago because of the controversy regarding breast cancer and also because I was experiencing breast pain. I am now experiencing night sweats, prostate vaginal dryness unusual fatigue. I am also concerned about heart disease. I saw the product ESTROVEN advertised on television. Is it a good replacement?

Hi,

I’m sorry that you’re having a problem.

I don’t think Estroven is effective in the treatment of menopausal symptoms or has any effect in preventing the long term health problems of menopause associated hormone deficiency

I do not think estrogen causes breast cancer. I do feel however, based on the available research, that women who have undergone a hysterectomy and are without the benefit of appropriate non oral bio-identical hormone replacement have a lower life expectancy associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, strokes and osteoporosis.

Let me know what and how you do.

Dr N
