  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/748/itchy-skin Hi @MillyMollyMandy_66 Welcome! It's horrible isn't it - but not uncommon! I get this every now and then and it drives me mad when it happens. I use an anti histamine when i…

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/4839#Comment_4839 Hello @wattoo1971 Nice to see you again! I've wondered a few times how you're doing. I'm sorry that you still seem to be having problems. My sister has been going t…

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/comment/4768#Comment_4768 Hi @Graphia Try not to worry too much - radiology results are only one part of your diagnosis; it is best that your GP or referring clinician provides you with the …

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/734/male-menopause Hi @Trace6679, Welcome to the forum! It's really interesting that you've asked that question. I ran a Menopause Cafe recently, and I was asked the same question by a gentle…

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/730/crawling-feeling Hi @Manjit I haven't experienced that myself, but I have seen other women describing similar. Sounds awful for you! Would taking an antihistamine help at all?🙂

  • https://community.livebetterwith.com/menopause/discussion/729/hot-flushes Hi @Ruthy66, Welcome to the forum. It's awful when you think you're rid of a symptom, for it to come back again. Hope the letrozole is working really well for you. I think…

  • Hello @naz1971  Welcome to the forum. I went to have a look about bio identical hormone therapy when I saw your post. There have been some articles in the news this week querying the safety of these treatments - so I wanted to know more. In searc…

    in HRT Comment by Kaz August 1
  • Hello @michellemc  Welcome! That must be frustrating for you! The length of time a woman takes HRT is variable. There is no set length of time that you should take HRT for. Some women take it for a few years to help improve their worst symptoms of…
  • Hello @Laura1966  Oh Laura!  This makes me very cross to read! I was refused HRT for a very long time because I suffer with migraines. My menopause started after a hysterectomy when I was 34. I was 50 this year, and finally got given HRT patches j…

  • Stay in touch Karen - let me know if I can help in any way. 😊
  • Hello @Karenroberts123, I'm so sorry to read your post this morning. At its very worst, menopause can have a debilitating effect physically on some women, but can also cause real emotional issues, relationship breakups and problems at work, with fam…
  • Hello @Jeskie, Welcome to the forum. Its frustrating isn't it? You find something that works and then something changes, and you find it doesn't work quite so well anymore. It's all down to the fluctuating hormone levels. I am now on HRT - but I h…

  • Hi @Tracy1166 , Welcome back again. Did you see a different doctor to get a new prescription this time? I think I remember that you'd had your HRT stopped and had been given transamic acid to help with bleeding? Did you find out why you were bleed…

  • Hello @whattodo , Thanks for visiting us on the forum.  I think it's lovely that you want to support your wife, and I think you're right. it must be very difficult as the partner of a menopausal lady. As women, we don't know what's happening to us…
  • Hello @Croakey66 , Welcome to the forum! And please rest assured - you are not losing your mind. I often used to feel exactly like this. A lot of women will understand what you're saying, and will be experiencing similar. There are things you can t…

  • Hi @Jo_joEyre Welcome to you!  Aloe Vera gel out of the fridge sounds amazing in this heat we're having! And a decent anti histamine should also help. If that doesn't work, and it's driving you mad, it might be time to speak to your GP for some hel…

  • Hello @LindaGH Femmenessence is a maca based supplement, so shouldn't have any impact on bleeding or spotting.  I would suggest that you drop an email to the company that makes the supplement to double check if you're concerned.  [email protected]
  • Hello @Manjit  Have you had a look at the symptoms checker? Perhaps if you can see all the symptoms you do have all together, and your doctor can too, they might be more sympathetic to your situation?  If you are having to wait for a while in order…

  • Hello again @HD213 , When I had my hysterectomy, I had a 10 month old and a 3 year old. Despite all the advice about taking it easy and resting, there wasn't really much opportunity to do that. I remember it feeling as you describe - sore and swoll…

 Oh @Manjit Welcome. I know just what you mean. The hormone fluctuations completely alter the way you feel, the way you view yourself, and how you behave. It's overwhelming at times. I think the thing you need to decide is what you'…
