Good day,

I' ve had a total histerectory 12 years ago and have not used HRTs.

I am now suffering from hot flushes, dark hair in my face and other symptoms.
I' ve tried HRT tablets, but it caused my veins to block (Trombosis).

Would I be able to use the implant instead or is this dangerous to me as well?

You should discuss with your gynaecologist about the risks versus the benefits of HRT. If is is felt that oestrogen is contraindicated, then you should not use it at all. There are other options for the hor flushes, such as Cipramil or Dixarit.
