Hi ladies I'm new to this and I'm wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar to what I have can help me.. I'm 37 years old and I had the marine coile for a total of 8 years. My period faded after i had the coile fitted and was gone within a few months. When I got a new coile fitted I had some light spotting.. the coile is removed over 1 1/2 year now and I have not had a period. My gp sent me for bloods and they confirmed that I have gone through early menopause. Luckily I had bloods done 5 years previously and when my gp looked back into the results he confirmed that my hormone levels were at their highest when I was 32..(to be honest I don't really understand it all) I do realize how lucky I am as I have two children and I have not suffered from any of the major symptoms I have read about only the odd meltdown and because of the coile stopping my period I didn't realize that I was going through early menopause. My delima is that my gp now wants me to start on hrt in case of osteoporosis (I'm awaiting the results of my Dexter scan) but I'm so frightened when I read all the pros and cons of hrt. I really don't know what to do.. can anyone give me a better insight as to what I should do?
