Clinically, it would not make sense to do that - although we can see how it would seem to make sense! Hormone levels change from hour to hour so it would be hard to pinpoint that ‘sweet spot’.

As ovaries would be removed and HRT would be used - native estrogen (that your body makes) and estrogen HRT act differently and so your pre-surgery levels would not be an accurate indicator to aim for.

If you are experiencing menopause symptoms then you will need to speak to your provider about titrating your estrogen HRT so that you can gain relief from symptoms.
