Looking for new hormone replacement

Hello, I have never been in a group forum so this is a little different for me.
I had a total lap hys. approx. 2.5 yr's ago.  I am 32 now and my HRT is not helping AT ALL!  I am currently on 2 mg Estrace.  I am having terrible hot flashes to the point that I wake up in a puddle of sweat, then I get freezing cold.  I have been researching varrious HRT' on micromedex.  I think I need an added progesterone, but I have been told PREMPRO has some hard side affects.  Do any of you have suggestions?  I noticed someone was on Climera and another was on the Vivelle w/ Prometrium.  What dose of prometrium do you take?  
While I still feel better than I did before my hyst. (pain wise anyway) there has to be some way to control these hot flashes!
Thank you in advance for any input

Hi there welcome to the forum

We are not Drs here , we are educated volunteers so we are not able to reccomed medicateions.

I think it would be a good idea for you to seek a nurse practioner who specialies in menopause, they have the time to really talk and will guide you through possible meds.

It can be difficult getting the right combo but dont stop until you do , its been 2 1/2 years thats too long to feel those flashes and have sweats so badly.

best wishes
