I'm new to this website and not sure if I'm using it correctly. I had a complete hysterectomy in 1980, at the age of 30. I had very early uterine cancer. Hadn't even penetrated the wall. Have always fought rness, but the last year it has been severe. I am so dry, it is almost raw. The itching and burning are awful. I talked with my Doctor about it and he will not prescribe any form of estrogen due to history. But the cancer was 31 years ago. I'm open and hoping for any suggestions.View Thread
Thank you for the replies. I plan on talking again with my Doctor at my next appointment. I think I'm going to pretty much "insist" that I be put on some kind of HRT. I have been on thyroid meds and have it checked frequently for quite a few years now. I guess my question to th doctor is, since my cancer was so long ago and I have had no problems involving cancer since, why can't I use some kind of estrogen. Just asking.View Thread
