Are HRT's effective for women who have had a total hysterectomy?

Two years post-surgery, I find that I have very little libido and response to sexual stimulation. Are HRT's (such as Amor Vie) effective for women who have had total hysterectomy? Thanks!

HRT is effective but you also need some testosterone cream.Within a week or so, sensation will be back to what I was if not better :)

Welcome, Anon!

Yes, HRT is effective when you have had a total hysterectomy.
However, based on this post by another member: http://www.empowher.com/community/ask/if-you-have-total-hysterectomy-immediately-start-hrh-what-happens-when-you-go-hrh it seems like HRT seems to work differently on everyone.

Please read through the post and let me know if it helps answer your question!
