I am 54, I have been taking livial for two years plus, gone off twice , because I was worried about the potential risks. I started to take it to relieve my menopause symptoms (waking up at odd hours, feeling sleepy at odd hours, tiredness, hot flushes) I have found it to be very good, i sleep better and feel very well. When I went off it I had such terrible feelings of shortness of breath once that i ended up thinking I was having a heart attack. So i went back on it.

I am quite active and have not put on weight, eat all I fancy and make sure that there is variety in my diet. (I love chocolates, peanut butter, cookies and pastries, sugar in my coffee, the odd junk meal!) I have not put on weight other than when I overdo the goodies or if I am on holiday with the family!! My husband cooks and he is so sood!!!

Livial has been good, no side effects at all !! I am grateful to my doctor for recommending it. Hope it will not have any side effects in the future.

    I'm age 54 and started on tibolone a few weeks ago so it's good to read some positive comments.

    I never wanted to use HRT but asked my GP about taking it due to the fact I suffer with lichen sclerosus of the vulva - I thought HRT might help with the symptoms of this incurable skin condition and my GP agreed. I'm hoping for improvement in 'quality of life' over risks.

    I'll keep updating - with good news I trust. smile

      Hi there

      I was wondering how you are doing on your HRT and whether it had been of any help with your LS?

      I am looking for any info on this as I have had LS for several years now and my Gp has recommended HRT for help with the skin of the vulva. Should I try it?

      Hi there, just wondering if you tried the HRT and if it helped your lichen sclerosus.. I am convinced my LS is as a result of hormone imbalance. I am 47 and have had this condition for a year or so. At around the same time many menapausal symptoms were occurring such as hot flushes, night sweats, tearfulness etc and are getting worse. I am unable to get my LS under control and was thinking of asking the doctor about possibly trying HRT to maybe kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak

      Thanks

      Jo

    :lol: [b:60f3df15e7]It is great to hear something positive about Livial, especially not putting on weight.

    I hope I have the same good experience with Lival which I have just stated taking.[/b:60f3df15e7]
