Testosterone in uterus

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone in uterus


Avatar f tn But hysterectomy (uterus removal) even when ovaries are not removed destroys pelvic integrity since the ligaments that hold the uterus in place are the support structures for the torso. Cutting those causes a gradual collapse of the spine, a widening of the hips and descent of the rib cage hence back and midsection pain. I hope you can find something to help you feel and function better!!
Avatar f tn I wonder if I should also use testosterone since post-menopausal ovaries produce mostly testosterone, some of which can be converted into estrogen. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I am 55 years old. DES exposure, menopausal, recently had some bleeding. Had transvaginal ultrasound , lining about 5-6 mm. Went in for hysteroscopy and D&C under general anesthesia, discovered cervical stenosis unable to do procedure. My MD wants to just sit on this and wait. On ultrasound I had blood in uterus after I had stopped spotting. He doesn't seem concerned because I haven't had any more obvious bleeding. I believe good chance blood could just be trapped in uterus.
Avatar n tn I am wondering why I am loosing so much hair after my complete (my ovaries are out too)hysterectomy? I was on 1 mg of Estrace which was very helpful the first month or two.I felt so incredibly good. My hot flashes were gone completely, and my moods swings were stable.Then after about one and a half months my hot flashes and mood swings came back with a vengeance.Because I couldn't get in to see the Dr. for another 2 months I started taking 1 and 1/2 mg of Estrace for another month.
Avatar n tn I'd like to know what my blood test results may mean. I've taking diet pills (ephedrine/caffeine) for a few years. In last year my endurance has decline. About 8 months ago I started noticing Fatigue, memory problems, body aches and problems maintaining erections. I started taking pregnenolone and 7-keto DHEA thinking it would increase testosterone. I finally went to my doctor 2 1/2 months ago. He ordered blood tests.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have recently found out that I have a high amount of androgens in my body. Meaning testosterone. I was wondering if anybody has had experience with either evening primrose oil or red clover for ttc or if anyone has suggestions on anything that could help.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am a 43 year old who is probably going to have a hysterectomy soon, I am waiting for the referral for the doctor affiliated with the hospital I will have the surgery at. I have fibroid tumors in my uterus and a mass on the left outer uterus, They are concerned because my CA125 levels are elevated to 46. I hope if I have to get this done that I will not have the hot flashes and night sweats anymore and hopefully too I will not lose my sex drive.

"Left Ovary" show biloculated Cyst measuring 34x27mm in size. "Cul-de-sac" No free fluid seen.
Avatar n tn i had a partial hysterectmy in 1992 i still have both my ovaries i have been to the dr and had a hormone test done and it was normal but i have all the symptoms of menopause except for the exctreme hotflases i have them but they are very very mild and not often, could i be going thru menopause?
Avatar f tn The ovaries of an intact woman continue producing hormones after menopause and are shown by studies to produce pre-menopausal levels of testosterone into the eighth decade (ages 70-79). The body can convert this testosterone into estrogen (aromatization) as needed. Gynecologic cancers are rare. Lifetime risk of endometrial cancer is 2.8%, ovarian is 1.3%, and cervical is 0.6% as shown here - http://seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/more.html.
Avatar f tn It has a progesterone in it and so will protect the uterus from cancer. At the same time, since the birth control pill works by shutting off the signal to your ovaries from your brain, the ovaries will stop making testosterone and your acne and rate of hair growth will hopefully improve. This is a common problem, for which I would recommend seeing your ObGyn or a Reproductive Endocrinologist to help decide which approach is best for you.
Avatar f tn I am trying to conceive but I have pcos because I am insulin resistance with high testosterone, which cause me to light bleed everyday the bleeding is brownish in color and I kno this is not a true period.
Avatar f tn s pelvic exam showed that my ovaries and uterus felt normal-sized. Hormone test revealed I have high testosterone but all my other levels are normal. I have a glucose and insulin test tomorrow AM and an u/s on Wednesday. My doc is leaning towards PCOS but I am skeptical since my other hormone levels were normal. So my question is this: does endo. cause you to have high levels of testosterone?
1139187 tn?1355706647 I was just curious to know if any of the guys in the group have testosterone issues and are you currently under treatment for this as well?
Avatar f tn ) I was apprehensive about taking hormones (estrogen) and my doctor told me he had success with something new that was being done and it was a very very small dose of testosterone. It hardly looks like there is anything in the syringe but I get it everything 3 weeks and my hot flashes are gone! If I don't get them, they come right back.
Avatar n tn High levels of testosterone are also common in women with PCOS which is why they tend to have excess body hair, oily skin and hair, acne, scalp hair loss. PCOS is not just a gynecologic problem. It is a condition of insulin resistance so has metabolic effects. I have read that losing 5 to 10% of your weight (if you are overweight) can be helpful in restoring ovulations and regular cycles.
