I had a total hysterectomy in march of 2003. I had had three previous surgeries, one being a fibroid uterine embolization, but the fibroids came back. The fibroid was so big it showed on an x-ray because I was having severe back pain. I am suffering now from depression, anxiety, and having difficulty concentrating. I am on natural hrt theapy, on tri-est and a natural progesterone creme. Has any one else experienced the same? I have no libido, and feel at a loss. I would like to chat with women who have experienced the same.

I share your symptoms also?
Hi Cindy,

I'm new to this blog and stumbled on your posting? I have the same symptoms, only I have been suffering with numerous complications since 2003. I've tried multiple hormone pills, anti depressants and just at my wits about the whole thing. I've never been the same since my surgery. I'm currently on Enjuvia, lowest dose and although it's the best HRT I've tried, I don't think it's enough. I battle with seasonal depression and I hate it. I have to call my doctor again today about going back on meds, which I have been off for about a year. I don't know what else to do. Have you discovered a miracle cream or drug? Hope your feeling better.
