I am 45 years old and around December 17 (infact just after my 45 birthday) started perimenopausal symptoms. I am still having my periods (albeit most short and usually non heavy but with clotting over the last 2 months:
Joint aches and pains
Apathy and fatigue
Disturbed sleep pattern waking 1/2 per night
Eye and mouth ie itchy gums
Weight loss/and loss of appetite
Dry hair & skin
low mood etc
(no hot flashes yet!!)
The list goes on..........
After a bit of a battle I was been prescribed Femoston 1/10mg by my GP on 16/02/18. I'm concerned about the risks and side effects of using these and have checked this site for more up to date information from ladies who are also beginning/using or have come off this medication. I would really appreciate some real experiences from others about Femonston and the pros and cons of taking and whether they have needed to change to something else and what please.
I have been referred to community gyneacology and hope that they will give to me patches instead.
Hrt is very new to me and I am nervous in using but desparate to get back to some normality to work and raise my 9 year old daughter.
Really would appreciate your help.
