    Have you been offered Estriol cream I have just started it because I have terrible burning and pain too with no UTI.  I am told it is a very weak oestrogen cream I wouldn't say it is helping dramatically will persevere for another week of every day then three times a week for two weeks then once a week. This feeling of needing to wee all the time and the pain with it burning and stinging is driving me mad. I am older than you and I would never have agreed too oestregen  cream but now will try it because doctor says it doesn't get into blood stream.

    Hi Susan,

    I’m 57 and been on HRT for 5 years.  Most if my symptoms were nausea

    Headache and extremely debilitating bloat.  Since HRT I’m feeling so good. I initially began HRT cause of hot flashes. Then began the other symptoms my menapause doc said weren’t symptoms of menap.  But we decided to up the estrogen and try. And it worked.  I’ve been on antidepressants way before menopause but maybe HRT can help you. I think it’s amazing. Good luck to you and be well!
