My GP had told me I still have plasma hormones but I had my ovaries removed years ago. Since stopping HRT 32 years ago I'm getting flashesI could do without.
I didn't think I could produce female hormones without ovaries.
I had my hysterectomy/oophrectomy when I was 26 (1986). Your body still produces hormones (both estrogen and testosterone) from other glands. I am a vegetarian and have always eaten soy products. One of the benefits of soy is that it breaks down to a type of estrogen substitute. I have never taken estrogen replacement and my levels have always been great. Try a few soy products (ice cream, appetizers, supplements) and see if you feel better. Also, have you MD test your glucose levels. Both higher and lower levels will make you sweat!!
