hrt post total hysterectomy

Hi.
I am 6 days post op from total hysterectomy. I am 34 and have 4 children. I cannot take any progesterone due to hydradenitis suppuritiva. I am being offered oestrogen only hrt. Is this a good idea? I do want to mitigate the risk of osteoporosis but not being given much info or any other options. can you help or advise me please? thank you

Hi,
Estrogen only HRT has its own set of problems. Proper diet, regular exercise and taking supplements of vita D and calcium will greatly reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Also herbal medicines can be tried under proper medical guidance.
Hope this helps.
