HRT 3 months on

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all. I have been taking HRT for 3 months now, as I have primary ovarian failure diagonised at 16 (im 43 now). I feel better generally, but still get anxious, fatigued, but down etc and no 2 days are the same. I just wondered if you have any experience to share, on how much better I can expect to feel at this point! Thanks for reading smile

We are all individuals so what suit one hrt wise may not suit you but progesterone the culprit for low moods and balance . Hope this helps be interested to know what GP started you on .?

      Thanks Joanne

      I was diagnosed at 16 so adopted 9 years ago. I actually went to see Dr Annie Evans at nuffield, who prescribed bio identical. Had to fight the GP to support the prescription but I'm on a small dose of testogel, sandrena and utrogestan. I have felt better but it's still a bit up and down. Thanks for replying
