      Hi Paula, Ok it can happens to the best of us. I'm taking 1/10 mg first the white tables for 14 days then grey tablets for 14 days then repeat the cycle.

      So 2/10mg is taken differently then as you say? If there's no information in the patient leaflet relating to this given your GP a call. I only know if you miss a dosage you continue as normal without doubling up.

      So hav you actually had side effects ? X

      The same as 1/10mg.  How long have you been on Femoston if over 3 months could be worthwhile checking your Testosterone levels as could be a possiblity that you might need this also?

      Initially some mild headaches but they seemed to have clear up. I find when taking the progestrone  & nearing my period, some bloating, tender/swollen breasts and PMT symptoms are increased do you find ? Think as you say some symptoms maybe normal!

      I am going to try oestrogel and Utrogestan tablets 100 these are body identical. Its very much trial and error but its helpful to share experiences as a measure of whats going with other ladies. X
