Progestin, Megace, lack of appetite after hyster,hormones
Hello ladies, i had a total abdominal hyster in Jan. 09. I was put on vivelle dot .1mg 2x a week. I have done well so far considering the hot flashes, mood swings, ect. I however totally lost my appetite after my hyster. I lost ALOT of weight, and being very thin already was not a good thing.

I have been now adding a medication called Megace (a progestin) which is given to people w/ certain hormone related cancers and to people w/ eating disorders.  It has indeed helped and im eating everything i can get my hands on.

I am wondering tho, if it is used for estrogen dominant cancers, ie, blocks estrogen, should my vivelle dot be re evaluated? I have noticed sore breasts/nipples and some mild hot flashes since starting the megace.  can anyone shed some light on this for me???

Is your Dr not aware that these two meds interact with each other? If the Megace does block estrogen then I would say yes, you do need to talk to your Dr about your meds and consider taking something else that does not interfere with your estrace but helps your appetite. Take care. Remar
