Is Progesterone still recommended after a supra-cervical hysterectomy?

Patient: I am a 60 year old woman who underwent a supra-cervical hysterectomy two years ago. I take Tri-Est .1 mg daily. My medical providers diametrically disagree on whether I should continue taking Progesterone Cream. One says “absolutely” while the other says “no way”. What is your opinion?

Doctor: Progesterone helps to maintain the lining of th uterus. Since your uterus has been removed along with a part of your cer vix there is no need to use progesterone cream.
