Peri-menopausal, 52. Started Evorel sequi patches.

So far: Constant body ache has gone, period longer than usual (3 days -was previously barely 2), mood definitely better, Libido returning (really), sleeping well except one night - but didn't feel as wasted the next day as I would have normally. Oh and slightly tender breasts. Think the anxiety levels are starting to reduce but not gone - but next week have avery challenging work week.

So far so good.

Getting on for 2 weeks now. Definitely feeling calmer.

Very stressful work week, haven't slept particularly well but have been able to cope better with the bad nights sleep than previously.

But just tried on last summer's favourite posh frock and it has, ahem, shrunk, so need to see if I can deal with that & lose half a stone more easily (reduced food cravings?) on HRT.
