I had a complete hysterectomy last October. I take estrogen but I feel tired, hopeless, fuzzy headed and no sex interest. I very stiff in the mornings also.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

Your symptoms do sound very similar to many other women who have had a complete hysterectomy. This puts a woman straight into surgical menopause which is often harder to deal with than natural menopause.

If you are taking estrogen now (in the form of synthetic HRT) and you have seen no improvement, it's time to talk to your doctor about other options although it's important to note that HRT does not work the same for all women and success varies.

It sounds like you are talking about getting bio-identical hormones in the form of pellets, is this correct? For more information on this, click here for our very busy and active community regarding pellets: http://www.empowher.com/community/share/sottopelle
