Hello everyone, pleased to be here. I am 55, post meno 4yrs and started trialing hrt last November. I dealt with a meno specialist and she recommended Evorel Conti for me and I started on half a patch and should have worked my way up to a whole patch by now but have been on 3/4 for a couple of months.
I have other issues going on, ie. gut candida and gut dysbiosis which cause anxiety and depression, I also have an under active thyroid and have Hashimotos.
Since my body crashed with very severe anxiety and depression in September 2015 I have been trying to fight my way back.
My anxiety is very severe every day and my problem is that I don't know whether the hrt is making things worse or whether it's the symptoms from the gut issues I have. I can't say I have felt worse on the hrt and the flushes I was getting most evenings have disappeared.
I have been working with a nutritionist to help get my gut right but have had to find a new one whom I spoke with the other day. She seemed quite concerned at my being on hrt as she sees a lot of women saying hrt makes their anxiety worse.
I don't know what to do to be honest. I think I should retest to see what my levels currently are as it has been nearly 5 months but instead of going up to a whole patch I have titrated back down to half.
I am at a loss as to what to do. Can anyone advise please, thank you xx
