    Hi Debra

    some bleeding is apparently normal when you first start hrt, as your body needs to adjust, I've been told by gyno that it can take up to 6 months to level out. What hrt are you using?

    Hi Debra

    Do not despair as I am was the same. Constant headaches with awful tummy and bowel problems. But with time, they do pass. My headaches were never ending and it is only now after 2 years they have began to subside a little but I still get them. I also get awful wind, thats brings neasuea during the night and in the morning. Id a scope down my tummy and there was nothing wrong.

    This is very common as our bodies transition and you are not alone. I take 2 x paracetamol and 2 x ibruprofen when the headaches come on as this is the only thing that can help. Also I get very tired and today is one of those days and I too have a headache. I know if it is awful and eventually the GP diagnosed me with Migraine and an irritable bowel. No one could prepare you for what is ahead for some of us women and this site has been a god send.

    Big hug to you.
