I have been peri menopausal for just over a year. My symptoms are all psychological. Very low mood, anxiety and insomnia. Generally I get a couple if good weeks per month but then I am very up and down with mood swings until after my period finishes. It's so miserable.
I have been taking HRT for 5 weeks now. Very up and down from the start. Pattern of symptoms still the same. Very low during withdrawal bleed followed by 2 good weeks then awful mood swings and low level anxiety.
I started on Estradot 25mg patch with seperate progesterone. But my consultant has just increased my dose to 50mg patch as she thinks I am too young (only 44) to get by with just 25mg.
I am feeling on edge with under lying anxiety. Been on increased dose for 2 days. I am not taking the progesterone this month to avoid a withdrawal bleed when we go away next week. My consultant suggested I do this. She said to just start the Utro when we get back.
So I am on day 21 of my cycle just wearing a higher dose patch but feeling far from 'right' inside.
I am so fed up of this rollercoaster. When will my mood stabilise on HRT?
