*This website DOES NOT constitute treatment and only provides information and advice in a Q&A format. For treatment (therapy and/or medications) you must go to a licensed professional in your area. Please note that anything said here is not private or confidential, as this is a public forum. Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I cannot tell you if you should get a hysterectomy or hormone supplements as that is more inline with an OB/GYN or an endocrinologist, but I can tell you that hysterectomies and hormonal treatment typically will not resolve a Bipolar Disorder. May I ask, what are the current doses of your medication and for how long have you been taking them? Also what previous medications have you taken?
