oopherectomy
« on: February 17, 2017, 06:15:33 PM »

Hi, 6 weeks ago I had both ovaries and tubes removed along with the large cyst that was attached, I never thought twice about the op or the Hrt after as I  don't think I took all the info in in the short time I had before op. I had a mariner coil fitted and a patch. Felt fab at first, then the coil moved down and had to be removed! I am now on evorel sequi 50 and conti. Not feeling as fab as I find one day im relaxed and happy but the next im feeling ready to scream and shout. I have the brain fog too lol. An one else in this position. I'm 44 and thinking In hindsight maybe cysts would of been easier to deal with. Gosh the whole Hrt thing is a worry too. Love the site x

Hi and welcome to MM
What a shame the Mirena moved - the Mirena results in less progesterone circulating around the body, so usually brings fewer negative side effects. Using a continuous HRT will often bring more PMT type symptoms Iím afraid this is because one gets more progesterone every day  - this is why many women choose to use a sequential HRT. 
Why not see if you can have another Mirena fitted or try using a sequential HRT which may bring fewer side effects - unfortunately the sequi HRt will mean a monthly bleed but this can often be better than getting the side effects of using progesterone all the time.  Have a look under TREATMENTS at the top of this page to sees your options.  DG x

Thank you, I read that some ladies cut the patches in half to lower dose and effects. Is this ok to do without docs advice?. I'm going to see surgeon again in a few weeks and will ask to prob go back on coil and patch. My poor family think I'm Jekyll and Hyde. I can't help but feel in a bad mood.  I also take levothyroine for thyroid. Can you take Hrt vitamins as well as Hrt x

Yes, you can take vitamin supplements. 
Iím not sure you should cut the patches in half as this may not sort the problem - it may well be the type of progesterone causing the PMT and you would still be taking it every day.   I would see your GP, explain you need to try a different HRT -  they may be able to prescribe a different sequi HRt in the mean time until you see the specialist. Perhaps ask if you can try Femoston 1/10 sequential HRT as this has a kinder progesterone and suits many women very well.  You would get a withdrawal bleed each month on this Femoston but this may be better than the constant PMT.

Hi sassy44

 :welcomemm:

Hope you manage to sort out your HRT. Don't forget that effectively you've had surgical menopause because your ovaries have been removed - so eventually you may well need a higher dose of oestrogen and maybe testosterone as well. Unfortunately you do still need progestogens as you have your uterus - so it will be important to find the right one that causes least side effects for you.

I agree hopefully another coil will do the job and then you can easily adjust the oestrogen dose.
