I have been very interested to read other user's comments on Livial. I have been using Livial for the past three years and feel I have benefited from it. Prior to using Livial, took many other forms of HRT, but had constant breakthrough bleeding, this was investigated and it was then suggested I try Livial. The bleeding stopped, the libido greatly improved along with a general sense of wellbeing. I am 73 years of age. It would be interesting to hear about any positive comments from others.:lol::lol::lol:

    Pleased to read about your positive experience with Livial. I am 60 and had my menopause at 40 and took HRT for about 10 years before having a full hysterectomy 2 years ago after starting break-through bleeding for the later 4 years. I've been on livial 2.5mg for about 3 years. My worst sympton after turning 40 was severe depression. Currently I'm feeling normal (good) but taking anti-depressants as well as livial. Partly because of the cost I started to take livial every other day but after about a month have reverted back as my libido (never great)and mood seem to have deteriorated. I wonder about side-effects but today decided to continue with livial probably for the rest of my life unless I find any good reasons not to, as I'm sure I feel that much better on it. What dose are you on? Do you have any good links?:D

    I'm also pleased Livial is working for you, I'm 54 and have been taking it for 5 weeks. I have only experienced limited relief from the flushes and none at all with the sleep and libido problems. Worst of all I've inexplicably gained 7lbs in the 5 weeks, so I'm thinking of coming off it. What I noticed most in your posting was your age - does this mean the menopause can and does go on for many years? I really don't think I could stand it that long!

    Re. your comment on noticing my age! Please do not be discouraged by this - I need to explain that I take Livial partly for my bones as I am very slim and have several risk factors for osteoporosis. Due to this, have taken many forms of HRT for years, all of which seemed to create one problem or another - Livial seems to suit me the best. Everyone reacts very differently to these drugs. The libido improvement was just a bonus really! Another reason for taking it is for the vaginal dryness, which most of the forms of HRT helped, but, as mentioned earlier, I had other problems with them. I hope I have made the right decision to continue with Livial, have done a lot of research on this form of therapy and tried to evaluate the risks as best as I can, alone and with the help of my good doctor. I wish you all the best and can assure you the menopause passes on and in some ways life becomes very good. Take care. Best wishes to you.:lol:

    Glad to hear your positive comments. I'm nearly 54 and took the pill until last year. So after one year of stopping the pill and no other HRT I started to find the last few months very difficult. Extremely anxious, tired, lack of sleep, vaginal dryness, bad concentration. Hot flushes I could cope with but were annoying. I started taking livial last week, I can honestly say that after the 2nd day my hot flushes stopped, libido increased and my mood has definitely improved. It's a bit scary to read other negative comments and glad yours is a positive experience. I am quite fit and exercise regularly but I do feel I have to watch my diet. I hope that weight gain wont be too much of a problem.
