I had a complete hysterectomy in Aug. 08' due to endometeriosis and ovarian cysts. I was put on Premarin the day I left the hospital. I had to increase dosage to 1.25mg due to hot flashes. I rarely have hot flashes anymore, but within the 1st 6 months of taking Premarin I have gained 30 lbs.

I had to have a complete hystorectomy at the age of 30. I have been on premarin for a little over a year. I started out having headaches about once a week to having one nearly every day!!! They are getting worse!! I also have very little sex drive, which never was a problem before the surgery. I'm not sure if its the drug but I'm going back to find out this next week.
