Hey there,

Me 2, everybody is different though, I tried HRT but symptoms didn't improve, the biggest issue for me was night sweats which ive found a medication that works but isn't even for the menopause, the best thing for me is now don't have a period and no hormonal rages!! lol..x

It's like a huge secret eh, no one talks about it... why I don't know :?:

I started mine when I was 48, periods lessened until I was 50. (one every 3 mths, 6mths, 3mths again, 8mths then a year) Didn't get very many of the dreaded hot flushes, loads of night sweats though :oops: :oops: :oops:

My hormones seemed all over the place, so the doctor put me on Citalipram. Cried if anyone looked at me the wrong way, felt like a complete idiot! At the age of 51 I was told I was through it... hooray!

Although at 51 I had Fibro... 55 next week and the middle age spread has turned me into a not so lovely apple shape.

Good luck huni and watch the [chocolate]
