Hi ?? I am 60. Have been on HRT since I was 50. Have tried to wean myself off a few times but with no success due to symptoms returning full on. Had a few bleeds in the last year so after the last one decided to go off it for good. Six weeks in and I'm going mad. Massive joint pains, fatigue, anxiety and dizziness and neuralgia and of course the endless hot flushes. I am going back on it despite the warnings of doctors. I think quality is better than quantity at this stage if my life as I am working as a hairdresser and will have to until age 67. (Insert massive groan and sigh) I've tried sage tablets, natural hormone powders but nothing works like the synthetic hormones. I wish doctors were more honest when prescribing HRT that the menopause is literally on a pause button until you come off it and it starts afresh. I would have tried to go without it from the start if I had known. Would love to hear your stories ladies. 😊
