I had a hystorectomy in 2001 and started menopause in 2002 and have had it since. I went on to HRT at the advice of my doctor even though my Mum has had breast cancer and have been on a low dose for about 7 years now. Even with HRT patches I still get hot flushes day and night but not too severe. I also take Menopace, Evening Primrose Oil, Osteocare, Vitamin C which I believe are supposed to help
My blood pressure has started to rise a bit and the doctor wants me to come off HRT. I tried but have put myself back on them as I felt absolutely dreadful. Headaches, severe hot sweats, palpitations, mood swings etc. I put a patch on last night and I already feel a lot better.
I do really need to get off HRT as my doctor has requested, so would like any suggestions anyone can give me to help me
