Im new to this forum. I've been having hot flushes for 18 months now and they have intensified to around 20 per day. I have put on an extra stone in the past year, have insomnia and no libido. I've had a mirena coil in for 7 years with no bleeding. I've had this removed 2 weeks ago and am waiting to see if my periods come back. The Dr who removed it is a menopause specialist and reckons I'm in early onset menopause (I'm 45). She was quite patronising and really scared me. I felt pressurised to take HRT as she said I would be at risk of heart attack/stroke and even dementia! I'm in a dilemma - this was two weeks ago and still no bleeding. I hate feeling this bad and don't know what to do.
