After suffering hot-flushes and mood swing for 18 months, I went to my GP, who after getting my blood test results confirmed \" You are well and truely going through the menopause\"
I was give HRT tablets and told I would feel much better within 3 months. The hot flushes stopped, my mood was greatly improved in a few weeks, however my periods were so long and heavy I went back to see the GP.
Who then suggested the Marina coil, which I had fitted.
Within days of stopping the HRT I was an emotional wreck again, so after yet another visit to the GP, I now have the coil and Evorel25 HRT patches.
I'm feeling better the flushes are under control and for the last month I've been going to the Gym 3 times a week, I've not been on a diet as such but I am watching what I eat.
I was horrified to get on the scales this morning only to find I have GAINED 5 POUNDS....
