Well can you believe it?? Some of you ladies will already know I've been on HRT for 31/2 years and it really agreed with me. That was up until I had a scan and found I have fibroids so one of the doctors at my surgery advised me to stop the HRT. I weaned off gradually and eventually stopped by the end of January. Long story short.......all my symptoms have returned. I'm sweating like a pig, come out the shower and potter around my bedroom and the sweat pours down my back. Can have a hot flush at anytime and anywhere. Moods all over the place and put on just over a stone in weight. Just feel yuck I felt so much better when I was on the HRT!! Energetic, bubbly personality, lost weight without even trying and the icing on the cake.....great sex! lol
So.....popped along to the doctors and saw a lady doctor. Not old enough to know what the menopause is like as yet! She basically told me that I probably had fibroids before I even went on the HRT and if I wanted she would give me another prescription and see how I go!! She is referring me to a gyne just for a 'chat' and to see what he/she can offer me.
I'm now in a quandary....what do I do? I'd like to go back on the HRT or do I wait until I see the gyne? Took me some time to wean off and when the gyne finds out I did wean off they may tell me off for going back on!!
The GP's don't have any idea about menopause do they??!!
Any suggestions ladies? I just know for sure I felt a whole load better when I was on the HRT!
