Hi everyone I'm new to the group and need some advice please. I have been suffering with night sweats, mood swings, tearfulness and aching hip bone for a while now and saw my doc last Monday. I asked if she would do a hormone blood test which is due next Tuesday.
After talking to her for 40 mins and her doing some background digging she told me that when I had an ectopic pregnancy 12 years ago and lost my right tube and ovary that my estrogen levels would have diminished greatly and that with all the symptoms I'm having now she would highly recommend that I start HRT!
At first I was shocked as I considered myself too young but after listening to everything she said I now feel that this could be a fantastic option for me.
In the last few months I have flown into constant rages with my hubby and kids and just cant seem to control them when I get into that state then out of knowhere I can just start sobbing uncontrollably.
I've done a little bit of research on internet about pros and cons but I would really like to hear from women who have actually gone down this route of HRT before the menopause. I would like to know the "real" pros and cons and whether (as stated on some sites) it does actually increase your mood, energy, sleeping patterns, flushes and libido.
I appreciate anyone taking the time to reply as I just need to hear personal experiences.
Thanks so much
