Hi I’m new to the forum and everything I have read is like describing myself. I started having symptoms when I was 50, I am now 55 and not had a period for 3 months and in a nutshell I can’t cope with life, I feel as if I’m drowning. It’s affecting my life in ways I didn’t think possible and my marriage . I’ve been to my GP which was a complete waste of time. I have been taking Menopace and magnesium which just takes the edge of but I feel I’m probably immune to them now as I feel my symptoms are getting worse. I want to give HRT a go but I was advised not to as my aunt and my grandmother on mums side had hormone related cancer. Another another GP has said it’s fine. Please please if possible can you advise me if someone with my family history is able to take HRT as I feel I’m getting conflicting information, and I don’t know where to turn or what to do 😢..Thank you.
