I know what you mean about irrational fears with meds. This anxiety definitely kicks in as and when. I've not been bad today, even managed to watch a film all nice and calm and could breathe. Then.. come to bed and straight away it starts again.

I'm going to take an antacid tablet and see if that helps.
Would be interesting to know if  the supplements work Jules53. I'm convinced it's a mix of menopausal hormones crossing with silent reflux issues. Just want to breathe properly.. (I know I am doing or wouldn't be writing this) but sick of that trying to get air in my lungs feeling. My post nasal drip has calmed a little but I'm still getting the stuffy weird nose feeling, it sort of feels like the acid heartburn feeling is sometimes up in my throat nose and ears 🤷‍♀️

Leave it til Monday then tell her you've been sick all weekend on the ads. Sometimes it needs some lateral thinking  :-X
I bet she only told you to take them so she didn't ruffle her colleague's feathers. Spineless IMO.

You should probably discuss with your GP, but they are not always very well informed. If you take vaginally you need half the dose as it gets straight to your uterus.  So one every 2 days ....... I think.   Look at the resource info. on loads of useful stuff.

My hair is an up hill battle, i have naturally curly hair and I live in Queensland Australia. And even though we are in winter we are still having high humidity days. Every day my hair grows bigger and more frizzy.

I only wash my hair every 5 days (apparently for curly hair the longer you don?t wash it the natural oils come in, leaving less dry). Only brush my hair every 5 days (in the shower wet with conditioner in it). Quickly wash the conditioner out so (5 swipes of the shower head). I then applied leave in conditioner A?kin. Then apply hair styling product Catwalk curls rock amplifier and leave to dry naturally.

And to find a hairdresser that can cut curly hair.  :-\
They all say they can, but they are so wrong. I?ve been kick out off an hairdressers when my hair started to get frizzy when she was working on it. But ther is an hairdressers in Brisbane that only cuts curly hair only. Amanda cuts it dry and then wash and sets your curls. Great job but for over $200 for a cut and wash, I can?t afford that. So at the moment I go once a year to get it cut. I go to a cheap hairdressers and get it cut for $30, come home wash it again and fix up the cut but cutting it myself.

The joy of curls ;D

I would say the majority of ladies in my group didn?t smoke, the majority have had children. The pill can cause dryness. My gynae will say it?s simply due to decline in oestrogen which cause physiological changes collegan etc & it?s very common.

I never smoked, went on the pill & I had 3 9lb babies .

I don't know if it's true but heard that smoking could contribute to VA, also not having children?  I was on the mini pill ( contraceptive) for a number of years because I used to smoke.  I did not have a period while on it, unlike when I was on the combined pill.  It didn't seem a problem at the time but not having a bleed all that time maybe contributed to my VA later.
