Hiya All. Long time - no post. Life has just got in the way, which ain't no bad thing where Peri symptoms are concerned. Nothing like a house-move 130mls away from family to take your mind of Peri!!
Well I've just finished my second month of PremPak C. Well actually I've Finished Full Stop because for the 2mths I took it, I bled for 22 & 24 days out of the 28 days of those two months. Not what I signed up for!
I said I would probably give HRT a go but I suspect this particular HRT probably wasn't right for me.
I'm so anti-meds in any shape or form, that I didn't want to try a different HRT at this stage. I think the constant bleeding was just too much, but I knew that break-through bleeds, spotting, and 'Periods' should be expected up to 6mths of use: sorry that's too long for me.
I'll be going back to my Serenity Bioidential Progesterone Cream at the end of this month. I now know that I felt OK when I was using that.
I'm now on a high dose of Vit D(long term) too. That may do me, for the ol' joints/bones.
I think reintroducing oestrogen wasn't so great for me. I swear this bleedin' stuff BOUGHT ON the sweats, palpatations, PMT symptoms, terrible fatigue, really aching 'Charlies' - not to mention bumping up the weight/mad appetite increase.
I can't say that I'll never go begging my Doc for some other HRT - I have no idea how I'm going to feel at the end of this month, let alone in a year's time. But, as I told my 2 HRT-loving sisters: I gave it a go, and this stuff didn't work for me, so I'll just keep seeing what works best for me.
Be interesting to see if anyone else experienced any of my symptoms. Believe you me, if I felt really bad, I think I would have asked the Doc to prescribe me a different HRT, but clearly I ain't got it that bad.
Having said that, I do hope I don't get much worse than I feel now!
