I had a partial hysterectomy years ago been going threw menopause since 42 now I'm 49 just started the estradiol 0.06 mg patches,worried about weight gain and cancer dementia both runs in my family
Hi Charlbestrong, I was on HRT for 33 years. Had a complete hysterectomy and an oophorectomy at 31. I stayed on a continual dose of hormones for many years and had a hard time gaining weight. No, HRT should not cause weight gain any more than going off HRT would cause the growth of a beard. That is a small dose.Don't worry.
