    I found that anytime I stopped HRT, I was ok for about 3 weeks, then all the symptoms that I went on it in the first place, returned. 10 months after stopping, I am no better. However, I know many people who were fine after a spell of taking HRT and then stopped. I hope you find this

      Hi Anjibebe.  There are lots of forms of hrt & some have lower risks than others. You could chat to your gp about options if you want to, or see if your surgery has a specialist meno/gynae gp or nurse (many surgeries do these days) that you could talk to.  I am on estrogen gel & micronised progesterone capsules (utrogestan) which are low risk hrt. just a suggestion hun. xx
