Is it safe to pull someone off Estradiol after 26 years?
I have been on HRT-Estradiol for 26 years due to a hysterectomy at age 23,. double Oophorectomy at age 32 and I am now 49 years old. I tried 2 years ago to go off the hormones and my husband and i both could not live with the effects of being off the HRT. My symptoms were Hot flashes-severe, night sweats, vaginal atrophy, vaginal dryness, hair loss, dry skin, moodiness, memory problems, etc.

I am on Synthroid 100mcg and my TSH level is 11.46 right now. I tried to tell my GYN if she pulls me off of it that it is going to mess my thyroid hormone up even more, she won't listen to me.

I currently have lupus, possible sarcoidosis, fibromyalgia, inlammatory arthritis and nerve problems. I don't need more symptoms on top of this.

How do i convince her to keep me on it.

There is no history of breast cancer in our family.
