      My bladder before HRt was terrible....apin and leaking and needing all the time.  Hrt settled it right down alongside the bladdermeds.  It is a very common symptom for women.  Your symptoms don't sound nice.  Have you been onHRT long because it has also lessed my aches and pains.  Guess I won't be able to drink again but I don't really careas along as I am well.....it has actually settled over the last couple of hours so here's to hoping it is gone tomorrow.  I hope you feel better soon and yes it does feel like someone else invades your body...some older, ill, stranger!!!

    oh margaret 

    which HRT did you start ..

    i have great results with the Ovestin Vaginal Ovules ( estriol ) and premeno duo ovules.. for dryness and bladder sensitivity and a mild uterine prolapse annoyance 

    i cant take oral HRT or patch..

    just a little Estriol for the below nuisances, and being post menopause ..

    thats all it treats, doesnt treat all the other symptoms 

    hope you feel better soon

    I have a lot of bladder problems myself leaking and urinating a lot I have to wear protective underwear at times that is how bad it is at times. I can't be on HRT becsause of the other medications I am on like my zoloft my ativan, my levothyroxine, and my blood pressure pill, HRT will cause me a lot of anxieties that I do not need 

    that and a lot of hormone difficulty

      my ovestin ovules are HRT ( estrogen) Estriol .. ( ovestinon Vaginal Ovules here ) 

      scared me when i started them, but cant be without them, Gyno said they would help no end, and they do..  they are not readily available in some countries but here in Spain and most of Europe they are  ( Uk dont think so ) 

      they are so soothing, not messy, ... couldnt be without them, like you Margaret, there comes a time when you cant stand it any longer.. ' quality of life ' 

      Premeno Duo Ovules are non hormonal so may not work for that alone like you say margaret, i use both 😄

      Yes I was on one and it caused me to become dehidratred to where I ended up in the hospital I forgot what it was called it was for overactive bladder 

      Never go on that again. 

      I don't drink either. You should never drink when you are on HRT it can mess things up good don't smoke while you are on HRT either

      Hi Susan after your reply I researched alcohol and HRT and my goodness you are right.  Danish study over 20 years indicates that women who drink 2 drinks per day 2 x more likely to get breast cancer and more than 2 drinks 5 TIMES!!!!!  Something to do with the way the Oestrogen works!!!!  Never mind my bladder that is enough for me...never drinking again!

    Hi margaret its a known fact that wine can irritate the bladder as can coffee and chocolate.  just flush out with plenty of water.
