Hi, I have started menopause at 49, doctor said my hormones were very high, did loads of tests but nothing bad has come back, I feel like I have no energy, running feels sooo difficult at the moment, haven't got flushes but got major sore boobs, stomach cramps, periods all over the place and feel very hormonal, I am taking menopace but dont know if they are doing anything or not, but it feels like such an uphill struggle all of the time, sometimes I think I am gonna go to the doctors and ask for HRT then another time I think noooo, I will ride with it.... can't seem to make my mind up... glad to hear other like minded women out there
My suggestion is to get a few books from Amazon. Opinions are biased, whereas a book will be much better researched & will give you much better base to make your own decisions from.
My only 'personal' experience of HRT is from my Mum & a co-worker. My Mum took it and only really experienced hot flushes. My co-worker didn't and had many problems along the way, including a significant bone thinning.
Good luck with it all. Take care.
