I started HRT mid February this year together with AD's mid January as things just gotten way out of control. - I am better but still not good The physical full blown panic symptoms have pretty much disappeared yet the mental is still there. I also still wake up about 3x during the night, without a particular reason (no hot flashes) but then get tired around 11ish again. Moods still up and down or just plain flat....as in no motivation. Still some brain fog, like mixing up days and not thinking clearly etc.Amongst other things.
So, I also started to have peach fuzz on my face the last few months to a year, yeay! Plus what was an occassional black hair around my right nipple has become a more regular pattern and on both breasts. I just pluck them out. - HRT has not helped that either so far.
I just wonder if A: is HRT helping with that hair issue (lucky I'm blonde yet still (ah never mind my skin is pretty yucky too)? And I also wonder if by now i should have better results from the HRT than what I have?
I am taking Femoston 2/10 tablets.
I read though that:
1. Skinnier ppl tend to store estrogen less good. (I'm 48 kg and 5.2" "tall") - I used to put on weight the last few years for unkown (well now I know) reasons, but lost it over December/ January this year with all the symptoms
2. I am 41 and in peri for quite a while, based on my FSH readings over the last 2 years and bloodtest that came as far down as Postmeno in all areas (although they jumped again)- apparently we need more too?
3. I am a smoker (yes I know smack me for it!) which works against estrogen anyway. (I WILL STOP, but I need to get a bit more level first)
Sooooo, perhaps my body is not getting enough estrogen??? and that would / could cause the hair stuff? And the moods...I wonder if you ladies have any experience with that? Also, if I be changing from pills to patches would I experience a worsening of the symptoms again? What are your experiences?
Thank you xoxoxo
