I've read a lot of conflicting info online on the topic, but have yet to seek a second opinion from a doctor. I had a "full hysterectomy" (uterus, tubes, and ovaries were completely removed) 3.5 years ago at the age of 26. I was initially on a moderate dose of replacement estrogen for two years, but the previous prescribing doctor (who is also the one who performed the surgery) retired. I began seeing his colleague, and she was worried that being on such a low dose in relation to my age would result in osteoporosis. I have been on the higher dose for one year, but miss the emotional stability I experienced when on the lower dose. When I reminded the doctor that my mother died of ductal carcinoma at age 54 and I am subsequently concerned about already being at a higher risk of breast cancer, the doctor said that the studies linking breast cancer and RHT had been recently debunked. Is this true?
