  • I've never heard of any GP giving out a years worth without checking that the dosage is correct. If I were you j would ask for the GP to look at it again. If you haven't collected the prescription then you are entitled to change the HRT that you ar…

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/817/coping-with-hot-flushes-while-at-work Hi @Kazzamalk Yes I do feel like that while at work. I wear layers so can strip down to a vest top and have the fan on me all day, I find that runni…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5591#Comment_5591 Perfect. Blood tests are a good start, at least you have a gp that is on it and prepared to help. Keep me posted x
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5586#Comment_5586 I was originally put on the oestrogel due to low oestrogen levels but I do wonder if once the levels return to normal should the oestrogel be stopped as too much of …
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5573#Comment_5573 Hi @MargeSimp67 It will be interesting to see how you feel once you have a new coil. I would imagine you will get a few headaches due to the rush of hormones again.…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5550#Comment_5550 Some medication can bring on vertigo, especially HRT. It may be worth asking to trial a different type or alternatively having the mirena coil with oestrogel. I've …
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5559#Comment_5559 Unfortunately it is very hard to get the medication and dosage correct as no two women are the same. I do think you need to have the bloods again, you also need thyr…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/837/hrt-patches Hi @Kazza123 I'm so glad that patches are making you feel better, it's wonderful when we finally find something that works As for the bleeding, it's quite normal for it to b…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5494#Comment_5494 Hi again @blankazsanna5 Your little brother sounds like the perfect person to be around and so innocent lol. How are the Christmas plans going ? X
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/864/struggling-help Hi @Ali71 I'm so sorry to hear of everything you have had to go through already, how often are you seeing the specialist and are they doing blood tests each time you go ?…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5540#Comment_5540 Hi @MargeSimp67 How are you feeling now? Vertigo can come and go. Nobody knows the real cause as it could be a number of things, sometimes an ear infection can caus…

  • Unfortunately until a year or so ago menopause wasn't talked about. Growing up I just thought my nan and mum were going mad and had anger issues lol.luckily now we talk openly about it and even have adverts about it so we now understand it a bit mor…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/841/christmas-with-my-menopausal-mum-please-help Hi @blankazsanna5 Welcome to this lovely group. How great that you will all be together for Christmas and you will get to spend time with you…
  • Hi @TJP Sounds like you've had an awful experience. Thank goodness it was finally picked up on. Is it a choice that you haven't tried HRT or have you been told to wait a while ? I find that magnesium helps with sleep and also vitamin b12. I take a…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5291#Comment_5291 Evening @gjh1967 Welcome to you. Was it your GP that diagnosed VA or a gynae? I think the problem with a lot of GPs is that they aren't actually clued up on menopau…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5347#Comment_5347 Hi @JBuckett1965 Thank you for that. I will definitely be asking my GP if he will prescribe it. X
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5274#Comment_5274 Hi again. Is your GP up to date on menopause? My GP is an absolute dinosaur and not got a clue he told me I needed a scan due to bleeding so sent a referral to the F…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5279#Comment_5279 I think what you are feeling about yourself is very normal. Our bodies and minds go through so many changes very quickly it's hard to keep ahead of it all. I let my…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/5282#Comment_5282 Hi again @Pauline11166 You will go in to full blown menopause and will have to take HRT but at least all the other problems will be over. It would be lovely for up…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/828/hysterectomy Hi @Pauline11166 Are you having your ovaries removed ? If not then a lot of your symptoms will slow down. If you are then you will go in to full-blown menopause and will nee…
  • Hi @Pollyana68 Welcome to this wonderful group. Brown blood is very common, it's the old blood that's just been sitting inside coming out, unless it smells or you are losing a lot over a long period of time it's nothing to be too concerned about. …
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/826/can-i-take-hrt-as-a-breast-cancer-survivor-11yrs-ago Hi @Hasu Firstly congratulations on beating the big c. Unfortunately HRT isn't advised for post cancer sufferer's as HRT can slightly…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/827/perimenopausal Hi @Kateolly1 Welcome. Are you currently taking HRT? Insomnia is something I've suffered with for year's, I take vitamin b12, D and magnesium which does help, I also use m…
