My gynie just put me back on a low dose estrogen patch as well as using estrogen vaginal cream 3 times a week. I had a hyst 21 years ago and was on hormones until the big hollabaloo about 5 years ago, at which time my FP doctor took me off my hormones. I am sooooo very glad to be back on them even if at a miniscule dose.
The night sweats were the worst, followed by hot flashes during the day as well as vaginal dryness. I went in to the doctor because I was spotting. It was because I had no hormonal support to the vaginal tissues. So far so good and the night sweats are just minies now and no more spotting.
I have not heard of any reason for not being on the hormones with SS.
