How I fixed my Hormones after Bariatric Surgery.. A sneak PEEK of my visit for HRT Pellets...

Did weight loss surgery mess with your hormones? It DOES happen, and you're not losing it! Do you want your sanity back? Are you having hormonal changes and feel all over the place? HRT, commonly known as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, has been my saving grace.

I had a hysterectomy in my 20's for a multitude of reasons. Initially, I started with shots, then to patches and creams, and lastly to HRT.

Hormones are very interesting, especially when you experience all of them at such a young age—I had a hysterectomy reasonably young. Trying to navigate levels of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone proved to be quite a challenge for several years.

We tried shots, pills, and patches. It wasn't until I came across Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) that I noticed any changes for the better. I won't lie, the beginning stages were hell, but each time I did it, I felt better.

The hormone shots made me feel all over the place and seemed to be a lot at once, and the effects were short-lived. The cream seemed to work at times, but you must be very disciplined just as you would be with a pill. Sometimes, I noticed a difference and other times nothing.

When I initially started HRT, it worked relatively quick for me. However, my provider at that time did not have a great system set in place for Hormone Replacement Therapy. My results were not ideal, and I stopped taking hormones all together.
