Need some Mumsnet menopausal wisdom

Hoping to benefit from some Mumsnet menopausal wisdom here!
I've just finished my second month on Femoston 2/10 and I have had no bleed as yet. This is after 3 months on Femoston 1/10 with a light bleed each month (my last period was around 5 months before I started Femoston and I'm 54). I understand it's ok not to have a bleed on sequential, does anyone know if this is correct?
I'm pretty happy on Femoston 2/10 although I've been having regular stomach aches and breast pains (aches rather than feeling sore) which I assume may be side effects - anyone else got experience of these? On Femoston 1/10 I had headaches more than anything else, these seem to have stopped now.
I hope to continue with hrt as before starting it I had severe anxiety and insomnia. These have now all but gone. Obviously I'll be seeing my doctor soon but she isn't really an expert on hrt so I thought I'd ask here too smile

It's ok not to have a bleed. I always have one but when I see my consultant he asks if I have and says 'some women don't.' I think the stats are 25% don't.
