I also don't take hrt because of how it is made, but since heart probs run in my family it was a factor. I will tell you though, it is important to find some way to get help with bones if you do not take hrt.

Made by depriving preganant mares water. They deprive them water so their urine is highly concentrated. I wouldnt take this!

The doctors put me on birth control pills as a means of hormone therapy. My periods are almost eliminated and I no longer have those chronic stomach aches 3 weeks out of the month. I was a afraid of gaining weight, becasue that's my body type—i can look at food and bloat. My lady doctor insured me I wouldn't gain weight, the packaging said I might and my family doctor said weight gain was common. Well, as I suspected, I am gaining weight rapidly, decreased energy and cravings for food I never would normally eat. I'm sure some of the weight gain can be from the extreme stress in my life, but that stress has been occurring 5 years straight. I'm not sure if the loss of my menstrual cycles outweighs the bad of gaining weight especially since I already have negative feelings about my body image. I think if a woman is a hormonal wreck, doesn't have issues with weight gain, the birth control pills is a good alternative.

Should hrt be done after having a complete hysterectomy? And then, how long when your histo is done when a person is still in there early 30's?

It's very dangerous.
