what a discovery htis website is! I take prostap monthly (on month 4 of 6) for endo (prescribed by Gybae consultatn) and was given livial to stop menopausal symptoms. I felt great for 4-6 weeks but then developed horrendous aches in my hips, thighs etc and coul dhardly get out of bed int he morning as I felt so exhausted that i went back to my sympathetic GP who suggested coming off. within days i felt better however the hot flushes began! On next gynae appt (3months into my 6 months of treatment) I told her about hot flushes and stoppin livial and she firmly recommended restartin livial for protection against osteo/heart disease/hot flushes. I have taken it for a month, felt OK at the beginning but am now feeling like an old woman - I'm 41! and the pain in my hips/lower is constant and crippling.
It looks as thought its a straight choice between flushes and aching. How marvellous.
Hopefully once they've cleared some of my endo through this combined treatment I'll be OK again, but somehow I THINK NOT. My gut feeling is that I'm in for a packet for the next few years :
