    Hi I can only speak for me but yes I have alot more energy.  I think it is because I am sleeping better because the night sweats have stopped.  I also no longer feel sick so I am eating much better.HRT works for me.  Would be a mess without it.  Hope it works for you too.XX

    I had the same experience with I started estrogen.  When my level got right I slept like a baby, had energy again, my nails started growing thick and long as they used to be, my hair started growing again and I felt like a new woman.

    So no, you are not experiencing a miracle, it's those tiny little chemicals that our bodies are craving.

    HRT was like a miracle for me. Most esp. for sadness, hot flashes and no energy -- it all went away, and fairly quickly. Hoping the same for you, MrsMerm. : )

    It depends on the person and their bodies I was tired while on HRTs because i am on other meds for anxieties and depression so i was tired while taking my HRTs not on them any more due to the bleeding that occured back in July

    It's not a miracle cure, but pretty darn close!

      Thanks Laurie, it has a long story. I was a little girl when the song was out. Our neighbours had a collie dog that I adored. His name was Spot (very original). My dad used to sing 'I want to be Spottys girl' and the song stuck in my head.

      Fast forward to 2013, one stormy day my OH found a tiny kitten in the road. He had a damaged front leg (which we later had to have amputated). When he walked, he bobbed, what else could we call him but Bobby?! I really am Bobby's girl now.

      That's my little man in my avatar

    If you're having hot flashes then it will stop them so you can sleep and you'll have more energy from a good night's rest. Prometrium is a progesterone that I took at night with a sleep aid in it. Made me groggy in the morning so I was switched to just "progesterone" at night and felt better. Good Luck and God Bless.
