Been to see GP today as he said a few weeks ago that he would be happy to prescribe HRT, to try & ease the path of perimenopause - this is on top of antidepressants & lithium for severe depression.
My blood pressure is high so i've been put on medication for that as of this morning.
GP asked if i have migraine with aura to which i answered yes but rarely, perhaps 1 or 2 a year - and he said i'm sorry but i can't prescribe HRT for you as you may have a stroke.
My world just fell in, i don't think its sunk in yet.
He said i could go down the herbal route but anything containing oestrogen would put me at risk of a stroke....
If anyone has been in this position or can recommend/advise a way round this i'm truly interested.
