Menopause hit me hard.

Updated: May 14, 2018

I am sensitive to the pill and react badly to hormonal contraceptive patches. When I started menopause I asked for a Hormone Replacement gel which is applied to the skin on the stomach and upper thighs. I also got a vaginal pessary for dryness. From the moment I started using the HRT, I felt better. My energy levels increased, my mood improved, and the fogginess in my mind was gone. I felt normal again.

I felt I was back on top of my game. I had more control and it was a huge relief. The HRT gave me enough energy to start exercising again.
