Yes one positive here! Been on it for a number of years and very happy. Feel great.

It took less than 3 days on Hrt to feel like a changed/recharged newer version of my old self. More energy, less anxiety, better sleeping , more sex grin

I'm 43 and have been on hrt since last May. I felt an improvement straight away but after 6 months it had really made a difference. Looking back I can't believe the person I was then, I feel 20 years younger and I have my zest for living back. I have nothing negative to say about it and would recommend it to everyone. Honestly it has a godsend for me, I felt like an old lady, no energy, was lethargic and just not a happy person.

Go to a website forum called menopause matters loads of positives there. Any thing to get you through this crazy roller coaster ride.

Thanks ladies. It's a strange time. Out of interest what are you on? Hoping to get help very soon.

Been on Evorel Conti since last May after finally convinced GP my menopause was over how bloody high does my FSH level have to go?- it was over 80!
Felt better within days, no more aching bones, exhaustion, inexplicable tearful mood swings, and don't even get me started on about dry fanjo! I'd been so creaky and in pain that the GP had sent me for blood tests for arthritis. 80% better in first 10 days, can barely believe just how bad it was now but I look back in horror.

I'm 47 and I feel good, finally have a pain free love life. HRT is wonderful.
All that for a sticker on alternate bum cheeks twice a week grin

Transdermal- patches or gel- is safer than tablets- fewer side effects and no risk of blood clots.

martiednotdead that gives me so much hope. I am waiting on my arthritis results at the moment but I do really think it is menopause.
theconstantlygardening my mum had a blood clot so will mention that.
