10 years after hysterectomy

I had my hysterectomy about 10 years ago at 36 (everything is gone), they wanted me to take hormones after about 3 years but I had just lost my best friend to breast cancer.  I have had no problems until now.  I think my body has gone into natural menopause and I am out of control!  More emotional with other symtoms (symptoms) I have read about.  Is doing a pogesterone cream (herbal) a good idea, I have no health insurance and I need to do something.  I deal with clinical depression and the health department just raised my dosage 2 months ago, so I am thinking it is hormonal.  What do you think?  I have just turned 47 and need some advise.

Thanks,

Lisa

Can the health department do any tests on your hormone levels?  If not, see if you can find a doctor who will make a payment plan for you, and get tested.  I don't think progesterone will help you as much as estrogen would.
