At 44, no periods for 3 years, psh level of 55 I am confurmed and menopausal. My doctor reluctantly prescribed me 3 months of Femoston today. Are there any side effects I should be overly concerned about? I don't have many physical symptons of menopause but am very emotional and grumpy and hoping HRT will help a bit of me to come back.

Not sure why your dr was 'reluctant'!

HRT is the advised treatment by NICE for women with a premature menopause- classed as before 45. You ought to have had HRT 3 years ago- up to the age of 52 ( average age of menopause.)

This is to protect your bones and heart longer term.

If your GP is so ignorant, change to another one or ask for a referral to a specialist who can help you.

I'd not go looking for side effects- everyone is different. Wait and see smile

I've just started femeston after trying a few different types HRTs.

It's helped with anxiety and hot flushes and I feel more me again. I also take Agnus Castus which seems to help with grumpiness and moodiness.

I'm still really down - but I'm starting to think that is depression rather than menopause!
