I have started my hrt journey today!, after much thought and waying up of pros and cons decided to give it a try. My doctor has told me that the risk for me on hrt is slightly less as i am under 50, just turned 47.
I am 4 months into the menopause, if i can get relief from my nite sweats, hot flushes, sore joints-elbows, fingers etc and snappy/irritable/low mood i will be more than pleased??!!!
I did enquire with my doctor about bio identical hrt as i read about it (and researched it too myself) on this forum. She said she had read a bit about it but it wasnt available, in case this was a money saving excuse i also asked at the pharmacy, they said they had never heard of it??!! Unless it just isnt available here yet?, im in Northern Ireland.
It would be lovely to hear from any ladies who have experience of this patch or hrt in general, length of time to take effect?, side effects etc?, good or bad experiences!
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this
