Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Since you have had a hysterectomy you can use estradiol pills, patch or cream as this will not increase your risk of breast cancer since you do NOT need progesterone.
I hope this helps, if you have more questions, please ask.

How do I get this medication? Is it over the counter or do I need a perscription? How long does it take to work once I start to take it?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 6 years ago.
You need a prescription for any of the estradiol products from your doctor.
You should start to feel the effects of it working within a week.
