Day 12 on HRT patch

Posted , 8 users are following.

I promised I would give an update on the patch.  So it’s day 12 and boy what a difference ! 

I had no life I could not ever feel awake and spent all day in and out of bed. The fatigue was immense I could have gone to bed at 4.30pm and if I did have one good day and went to dinner boy I suffered the next day .

Now I’m up in the morning AWAKE ! My dizziness has subsided and it’s like night and day from 2 weeks ago. I feel NORMAL 

I spent 3 months in HELL!  Fatigue dizziness even bloody suicidal .

My life isn’t what I want it to be right now as recently divorced so I get lonely but I can deal with it .

Life is too short to feel like I’ve felt. I’ve noticed a bit of bloating in my stomach but if that’s it .... I’ll deal with it and just do more sit ups !

    Hi

    Wonderful news.  So very pleased for you.  Hope it continues. x

    I started taking HRT last Monday with a family risk of clots and strokes but took as a last resort as have had hell for 12 months and am suffering from insomina, severe pins and needles and feel awful.  The patches made me constantly vomit and feel even worse so have had to come off them.  Back to the drawing board. xx

      Hi Nicola 

      I’m on the climara pro and no side effects except thought my stomach was a touch bloated but that just may be something else . All in all good .
