I have been on HRT for over a year now and feeling great except I have lost my libido totally. Is this a normal menopause/HRT symptom and if so how can I change this?

    Hello Fee1 

    I understand what you are experiencing because went through it.  My GP gave me a Testostrone Injection to help loss of libido and also a topical cream to use to called Androfeme, apply to body once a day and it worked wonders for my libido.  Only thing I am suffering from now after menopause are hot flushes, so back on Premia 2.5 Continuous.  Has been one week so 3 more to go before they actually kick in.  Hope this helps you. Keep me updated on your experiences.

    I have been on Premique for a few years now, I am 63 and like you have recently had the same problem, I haven't been to see a Doctor yet but if I have the same result as Dianna I will be very pleased. A continued physical relationship is as important as an emotional relationship so I will be checking out the options, thank you Fee for opening this discussion, I hope you have a good outcome too.
