I have had low testosterone for years but as they have increased it but my energy has not come back and my motivation for anything is still gone. I had a hesterectomy 11 years ago so what I am wondering could this be more that just low testorone?

I feel irretable a lot of the time not to mention extremely tired. My sleeping is not good and I just don't have the energy to do anything. I've also been having hot flashes that happen not just during the day but at night to. If I am going through menopause what are my options?

Has the cause of the low testosterone level been identified? Did you have low testosterone levels before your hysterectomy? With advanced age, testosterone levels normally decline. Surgical removal of both ovaries and premature ovarian failure lead to decreased levels of testosterone. Were your ovaries removed when you had the hysterectomy? The fluctuations and decline in estrogen and progesterone levels associated with perimenopause are responsible to the symptoms of hot flashes, both day and night, irritability, weight gain and sleep disturbances. There are options for managing these symptoms. Some women choose hormone replacement therapy, others choose lifestyle changes. Here are links to articles which may give you some information on options.
Working with your physician, you can find the option that works best for you.
