Its okay for me to respond to responses, right?(Im still new at this :)

> >>I actually asked my pdoc about testing my hormones, but he said that my "problem" was mood related, probably not hormonal. I wonder if they do affect one another and/or if they are just two individual pieces (to make the whole!)that need sorting out? Maybe you need both?

Hormone balance no problem after a hysterectemy? Pleeease!
Of course they affect each other, but your right , the depression problem may exist in some people from childhood, even before puberty.
> **Your pdoc is not the one to ask about hormonal testing.


** said most doctors don't use hormonal testing because they don't know what to do with the numbers!!

As my GP told me the numbers are not the best indicator of a womans hormonal needs. You & I may test in the normal range for estrogen levels but not feel the same. I may need more than you to feel normal.

The question is do you want to open the hormonal can of worms? It will take alot energy to get it balanced and then youll have to deal with cycles again. If you feel in your gut that this may be a piece of the puzzle, it wont hurt to start. There are little side effects to Natural hormone therapy.

** But if you're hormonally unbalanced, you're swimming against the tide to try to get your moods balanced.

I agree. But the change of menopause (in this case, pre mature) is inevitable. At some point we (woman)all will have to live with diminshed hormone capacity. That was one of the factors that figured into the national study. Women were taking Premarin long after the change because they "felt better". But the 1 - 2% increase in cancer is a serious consideration.

**It's pretty intense and I'm wondering if it's too much right now while I'm trying to sort out the meds?

Youll get lots of helpful suggestions and ideas to look into on this site. You know what you need. Follow your gut and keep investigating.

A great book on Hormones is "Natural Hormone Balace for Woman" by Uzzi Reiss
