Worried about bones
I am 56 and had a total hysterectomy 2 years ago. I took HRT for about 1 1/2 years, the Estradot patch. It worked at first but then a few months ago, I started getting hot flashes and night sweats and stopped taking it. I get no more hot flashes off of it than when I am on it. Just wanted to talk to someone else in a similiar situation. I hear so much bad talk about losing bone mass if you don't take something, that I am a little scared. Also my libido went way down and would like some other comments on this and what can be done. I took a lot of natural things but nothing seemed to help for long. I have used Primrose Oil and Black Cohosh and both seemed to work at first, but now nothing works. I stopped taking all my herbs and vitamins as I am not sure anything works anymore. I exercise, do weight lifting for my bones and eat healthy. I feel fine, have the usual aches and pains. Just worried.
