What type of HRT?

MenopauseorjustmeMenopauseorjustme Posts: 433 Menopause Nurse Practitioner

Good morning from a very bright and sunny UK.

Many of you know, I provide menopause consultations and I prescribe HRT. Recently I have been discussing types of HRT and what suits some women over others. Some women want to swap types of HRT to judge if they'll be improvements.

Have you altered from tablets to patches, or gel to tablets etc etc...?

I'd be interested in hearing your experiences. Did your patches stick? fall off is that why you altered it? Or just wanted to change?

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes

    Hi DIane, I'd be interested to hear your take on HRT. I've been reading a lot recently but all these types are just a little overwhelming at once. I heard that gel is the safest to use? I have a doctor's appointment soon and would like to know how to prepare best. Thank you in advance!
