Flu like symptoms, two left nostril nose bleeds, anxious

Posted , 2 users are following.

Tonight i am feeling flu like symptoms, I have had two nose bleeds from left nostril and i feel anxious tonight.

My OBGYN says its okay to take my estradiol 1mg and my progesterone but i am a little on the worried side about it. 

I heard the estradiol can cause nose bleeds and stomach issues and so can provera 

Isn't there anything else that i can take to lessen these nose bleeds, and my flu like symptoms and my anxieties 

I feel so drained i don't know what to do any more

    I can't be on hormones due to factor five clotting problems I do know that the side effects of taking HRT how long have you been on this if it's something new your body has to adjust to the medication. I would say if the issues continue to see your GYN she can then adjust you accordingly others in this blog have mentioned B complex and magnesium I read on both of these for peri and post menopause and seems to be helpful for energy, muscle and electrolyte support hope this helps.

    I suffer from the retched gastric problems that plague me daily and hope this to will pass with time

      Hi misty 

      Right now i just have it on the side because i still don't know if HRTs are right for me. I have not started taking them yet, because with having diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and hypothyroidism i still feel like HRTs might not be right for me due to those problems 

      I am looking into a vitamin for menopause instead of the HRTs 

      My OBGYN knows that i have high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, and hypothyroidism and he thinks its okay to take them. But with having high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, and hypothyroidism i can easily have a stroke or heart attack with out the HRTs and doubling my risk if I take the HRTs i do not want to do that so i have not started the HRTs again they are still on my shelf 

      What do you think
