I went to the doctors today and have been prescribed Evorel Conti patches.

Just wanted to know your experience on this type of hrt,

I'm on Evorel sequi, even though I am post menopause at 49. I started 5 months ago and this regime seems to suit me very well so far. I felt I didn't want to take progesterone all the time so 2 weeks estrogen only then 2 weeks prog & estrogen & I feel so much better! Back to how I felt years ago before all this palava started😌

Thanks Daisy, I am glad to hear that hrt is working well for you.

You are not wrong about menopause being a palava. When I was younger I longed for my periods to be over, I didn't realise everything that went with it. It's been rough.

It certainly can be a very rough time for some of us. I found the months after my last period horrendous...especially emotionally.
I hope Evorel works well for you and you feel better soon flowers

Daisy, I went to the doctors because I was fed up with joint and muscle pain. I wasn't expecting her to say try hrt so I was a bit surprised. I am a little scared to try the patches but I have nothing to lose really.

mermaid- conti HRT is for women who have not had a period for at least 12 months or are over age 54. You may get odd bleeding for the first 6 months and I assume your GP had advised and discussed this with you? TBH if you are just post meno, you would be better starting with a sequi type so you can work out which dose of estrogen suits you best, and how you react to the 2 weeks of progestogen in sequi, before using a combined type all the time.

Polly, I have not had a period for 21 months.

That's ok in theory but there is no 'rule' about using conti HRT if you prefer not to. I am 10 years post meno and use sequi still as I prefer a cycle, not taking progestogen daily.
