Re: Hormone replacement at 34
Hi. I don't usually post here as I'm past menopause now(almost 59). But I had a radical hyst at 32 for pre-cancerous problems/major endometriosis. I went on estrogen at the lowest dose with a plant based estrogen(Ogen .625mgs) and then slowly stopped it when I reached my early 50's....at an age my doc figured I would go through menopause.
I never had a single problem with any of it. Not being on the estrogen or going off of it. But I did develop the early stages of osteoporosis rather quickly(I have a lot of arthritis and take steroids frequently and that did it) once off the estrogen so I had it monitored through bone density tests and started the yearly drug Reclast 3 years ago for it. I am now no longer at risk.
With all the health problems I do have, this has been a delightful surprise to have no problems at all.
