    Hi, don't understand why doctors want to take ladies off HRT if they are well and are happy on it! I have been on patches for just over a year, feel fine. Doctor was ok letting me have it, just wish I'd known about them sooner. I am 66 and suffered flushes for several years before this.

    Pearl I think that's a discussion for you to have with your GP.  If he/she said you should stop only for age-related reasons, perhaps talk about your symptoms instead.  I think some GPs believe menopausal symptoms stop for everyone by a specific age, but unfortunately there's no hard & fast rule.

      Not heard of it but there are loads now. I am on Evorel Conti/50 and been fine. Maybe you just need a change, ie higher or lower dose, don't really know much about them tbh.

      Hi Pearl if you feel the need to go back on HRT go talk to your DR again .. my Dr said its up to the individual, well after coming off it for 3 months! i have gone back on it, Just had to. Quality of life is important at our age im 63 now' If i were you i would do what's best for you x

    Find a different doctor, it's your choice, they can only advise, not dictate I am 69 been on it since I was 38!!!!! I now have low dose and cut them in half , so even lower, if I find it not working I go back to whole for a few days, then it is all ok again, I would buy them if they refused, which is what u can do , but just tell. Them it's your choice not theirs.

    If you feel better on it you should go back to your doctor & tell them how bad you now feel & what the nasty symptoms are. Then ask if you can go back on HRT, if they say no then ask to see another doctor!
