I have been noticing a decrease in my short term memory. I am 53, and had a hysterectomy 6 yrs ago. I am on synthroid. My new doctor (a young male, of course) said that since it has been that long that I probably did not need to take hormones any more. I had been on Vivelle patches. A friend of mine said that her short term memory had deteriorated until her doctor put her on hormones and upped the dosage of thyroid. Is there a connection between the short term memory deterioration, not taking estrogen, and synthroid? I never did get hot flashes, so not taking the hormones did not bother me in that way.
