  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/4728#Comment_4728 Hi again @Manjit After reading up on it it seems it's related to the body's change in hormones which does make sense. They recommend an unscented good moisturiser t…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/737/advicadvice Hi @2019 It could well be the start of it or it may just be a virus. Do you have any other symptoms? Irritability, can't sleep, feeling like your blood is boiling, anxiety. R…

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/730/crawling-feeling Hi @Manjit Yes I can totally relate to what you are saying. It feels like you have ants crawling on you. I can sometimes scratch so much I make my skin sore. I even get …
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/732/early-menopause Hi @March73 I'm sorry to hear you are going through so much. To be honest HRT probably isn't the best route with cancer in your family. Have you ever thought of going on …
  • Hi @Graphia im glad to know you are finding the group helpful. Menopause unfortunately is still hidden in the closet so to speak and there isn't an awful lot of information out there on it so it is nice to know that you can come here and speak open…
  • Morning @Graphia sorry to hear you are having problems, unfortunately what you are experiencing is quite normal during menopause. I also had the same thing, tranexamic tablets are very good and will lighten the bleed quite quickly and will also sto…
  • Hi @Tracy1166 when you say is It ok for you to take, what do you mean? as a form of HRT yes its fine, its one of the common ones that a lot of women are on and seem to have good results. if you are on other medication and asking if its ok to take a…

  • Hi @Manjit It's very hard to say as we are all very different. It also depends if you are taking HRT. A lot of ladies will say that once on HRT they cope a lot better with all symptoms but still get hot flushes. Can I ask what symptoms you are expe…

Morning @@MargeSimp67 I also have the mirena coil and I have to say I hate it although it's only been in 2 weeks.  Seeing the gynae next Sunday and hoping they will give me oestrogen to add to it. You do have to give it time to wor…

Hi @LM29 A lot of ladies will recommend menopace. I haven't tried it yet but I'm going to. I take citalopram from the GP which really helps with mood swings which then also helps me sleep as I'm not angry with the world anymore.  I…

Hi @kevin2510 It's so nice to hear from a man on here that is supportive. Without even realising it you are already doing an amazing job just by being there and reassuring her.  Menopause is awful and treats us all very differently…

Hi again @@Housefaith I'm really happy that you are now taking HRT. It does take about 4 weeks to kick in so keep at it. Your body still hasn't had time to adapt after surgery so you will be very up and down at the moment.  Nobody …

Hi @Sparkalee222 I can honestly say that the bar of soap in the bed really does work. I didn't think it would but I swear by it now. Just slip it under your sheet form near your legs and boom.. no more restless legs :)

Hi @[email protected] That's brilliant news. How are you feeling now you have the coil ? Also when was it inserted? You can feel a bit tough for s few days after the coil is put in but people say they have great results from it.  I had a mi…
    in HRT Comment by Julie20 July 12
  • Hi @Julia1 Unfortunately bleeding is quite common when starting HRT. It's the hormone rush in your body. Once we start the process of menopause the body has lost a lot of the natural hormones we need to function normally, which is why we all feel s…

Hi @Housefaith Have you seen your GP regarding your symptoms? And would you be willing to try hrt?  Menopause symptoms are very different for each of us and can be hard to advise on what to use  have you tried menopace? A lot of la…
  • Hi @Cathray1 How are you feeling now x
  • Hi @Jaws Sorry you are having these problems. If the nurse advised you that your periods would stop you should get it checked just to be on the safe side. It may be that with the injection and HRT the hormone rush in your body has sparked them but …
  • Morning ladies. I think the first step is to explain to co-workers how you feel and what you are going through so that when you need that 15 mins downtime they will understand and not accuse you of slacking. During this stage of life it is really im…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/647/hrt Hi @NickyM I was also put on that HRT and exactly the same thing happened as soon as I started the 2nd half of the tablets. I lasted 3 months then the GP took me off of them due to e…

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/637/sleep-problems Hi @Stephi43 Welcome. Unfortunately sleeping is a huge problem for most of us going through menopause. I used to go to work and do 12 hour shifts on 2 hours sleep. I've no…
  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/636/decline-of-oestrogen Hi @Scoobydo That's a very good question. Problem is without regular blood tests you won't know what you are lacking in and taking too many vitamins can be just as d…
