HRT probs...

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi there, 

I've used Evorel Sequi for 5 months but the side effects are just too much (bloating, nuclear level PMT and breast pain) mainly towards the end of the month when using the dual patches so I have now been switched to Femseven Sequi.  My healthcare professional felt it was the progesterone that was the problem hence the change of patch... 

Has anyone had similar issues and found relief using another brand or is it just that the patches are too strong as I just don't feel good at all and just want to throw a tantrum most of the time as I'm so short tempered, tired and anxious.. 

not good. 

Thanks in advance...

    Hi AJ

    I've been on Ellesett HRT for two months and am throwing in the towel 

    The bloating is unbelievable I'm a size 14 but seem to go up to a 16 when I get to the progesterone tablets and it makes me miserable 😭 I loose my waist and my legs and arms swell as well 

    Don't know what to do but know I can't put up with this anymore

    Hi all, 

    Thanks so much for your comments, I'm sorry you're having problems too. I've just had another mini break down as I just feel so bad and just checked my BP and that's up too when usually really low, I've put weight on too and have no energy to do anything about it. I feel a total mess! Sorry to moan! 

    Think I will ring the docs tomorrow as I just can't stop getting upset... usually I'm so happy. 

    Hope you all find relief soon. 

    AJ. xx
