As it’s a rigmarole trying to speak to a gp just now i was hoping for some advice on my HRT here. I’ve been on evorel 50 patch and utrogestan 100(vaginally) for 4 months now. I feel so much better and all my distressing symptoms have gone except my breast have gone up 2 sizes and are constantly tender. I can’t hug my kids/hubby without arching my back. Am I getting too much estrogen?

34, although possibly 32.

Was waking at night at up to ten times a night. Cold flushes started, then the brain fog and not being able to find words and mixing others up. Memory was terrible. Gp thought I had dementia.

Last period at 43. Now on hrt at 45. Really needed it years ago but was fobbed off.

Has the brain fog, word problems and memory improved now?

It seems to have left a lot of people like that carina. I'm glad it was helpful. I hope you soon feel better.

After the pain ramping up today I rang again in tears and they're going to clean it out tomorrow. Hopefully that will help, as I'm really struggling.

Oh you poor thing, I think toothache is one of the worst pains ever. My husband has had toothache recently, really bad.  He took Ibuprofen and Paracetomol at same time - was told that was safe by dentist so if yiu can take it maybe check if that’s possible for you.  He had a few really bad days but antibiotics helped , he’s since had a root canal and went through agony again but it calmed down and is now fine.  Hope you get some relief tomorrow, really feel for you x

Thanks for the information Taz.

I think I had Covid back in April, it was never confirmed but I had all the symptoms.
When I spoke to 111 they said it probably was Covid.
Was quite ill for almost a week and then picked up.
But it seems to have left me with a bad chest, with wheezing and breathlessness.

I have ordered a meter today....will be interesting to check my readings.

I've been using Imvaggis since last October when I started systemic HRT. I wanted something low dose as Ovestin was causing discomfort. I also wondered if the excipients in the creams were the real cause of the problem too.

Anyway instead of switching to a generic estriol cream and using less of it, I thought I'd try Imvaggis as it's a hard pessary made of fat - can't remember if it's soya oil or peanut oil as the base so if you're allergic or sensitive to either this won't be the answer.

I received the oximeter today and have heard the importance of them mentioned throughout the day on news bulletins. A friend who is 66 and has Covid has just been given one by her surgery. She has to record levels three times a day and send them in to her GP so that early deterioration can be detected.

I think that the age restriction is for women who are not on HRT. Reading up on the reasons for the younger and upper age limits it is because 'thrush is rare in these age groups due to the lack of vaginal oestrogen'. I feel distinction should be made between women on HRT and not on HRT.
