Just looking to see if anyone has gone down this line & if they have any recommendations? Mixed response at Dr's with regard to perimenapause. I'm 46 with periods closer together & not lasting as long, hair loss, anxiety. First Dr was a locum & thought I probably was peri & gave HRT patches but I ended up crying, feeling down & anxious. I saw another Dr (both female) who said to come off them & as I was still having periods I wasn't menopausal! She gave me propanalol for anxiety & took bloods. Went back for results & review (another different female dr!) who said hormones were normal but thyroid was 5.4 so slightly hypothyroid but they wouldn't treat that level but to continue with propanalol as it was helping. Anxiety is more manageable but seems to increase about day 4/ of my cycle which is when I think estrogen starts to rise. I know hormones are all over the place in peri but I think I am probably estrogen dominant so thought progesterone cream might balance things out? Any advice greatly appreciated.
