Well I finally had my gyne consultation today and boy was I annoyed, dismayed, confused, upset........!!!!
Apparently, as I'm having regular periods I'm NOT menopausal nor am I peri menopausal!!!! I was gobsmacked to say the least. So WHY did my doctor put me on HRT for 3 years and why am I experiencing bodily and mood changes? HRT never helped my hot sweats much to be honest but I was on a low dose. My mood has gone downhill , I've gained so much weight and I've noticed changes with my periods even if they haven't actually stopped or even missed yet!! My hormone tests were normal and according to the consultant if I'm still having periods then I'm ovulating regularly etc etc!!!
So at the age of 51 I've yet to even start any peri symptoms. I'm just totally bewildered. IF I'm not peri then what is causing my symptoms?
Anyone advise above and beyond a Gyne Consultant who reckons she has done her job for years and knows better than us women on a forum!! Her words not mine It's MY body and I know what is going on regardless of how long she has worked as a Gyne Consultant!!
P.S. Feeling so damn p**** off right now
