Hi I'm 48 and just been prescribed Elleste Duet 1mg as I've been getting symptoms like aching joints and muscles, insomnia, heavy periods, headaches, itchy skin, mood swings, and occasional hot flushes. My GP seemed to think given my age that it was probably the start of the perimenopause.
My GP told me not to be too alarmed by the side effects, as I was a bit reluctant to go on hrt because of the health risks. I've been given 3 months worth to review at the end. She said I could take them up until I'm 51. Has anyone that is currently on them found they make a big difference and do you get any horrible side effects? Do you put on weight when taking hrt?
