Crispy the last 2 pills are placebo. The two before that are 1mg estrogen with no progesterone.

VA has to be controlled on a daily basis - our threads give lots of advice and sympathy  ;).  Although classed as HRT it's not the same as other forms of medication.  It can be used without other forms of HRT too.

Hmm, well I tend to apply it and leave uncovered for 2 mins, then cover with top etc. I rotate areas and arms, so i reckon you have a good 4 spaces on each inner forearm, so i would just rotate them around.

I understood 'no contact' to be for the first hour or so.....but i'm not sure if I have just dreamed that now....I will have a look round for more info.

Good Luck, I hope it works for you!

Thanks PMDD, I’d appreciate that.

It would make better sense if it was just an hour, but I didn’t think it said that in the section about children, which has confused me. Just said cover with clothing after leaving it to dry for two minutes. I hardly ever have long sleeves on!

I’m considering applying it at night to make it a safer option.

I am now 3 weeks off HRT, but continue to use internal oestrogen cream twice weekly. I felt so rough on the HRT especially after having my coil removed as it was sitting in my cervix. I now take menopace plus and 2 seabuck thorn tablets daily. I am trying to eat a healthier diet and do a little exercise every day. In general I am feeling better than I have in ages. My VA does seem to have gotten a bit worse, but I am trying to managed that. I am also not sleeping too well, but that could be due to the fact that I am on furlough and getting a bit bored at home. I know it is early days but I am trying to be positive and not less this blooming menopause ruin my life x

HRT isn't an instant cure nor will it solve all symptoms for all women.  It mayB that you need a hike in dose a few times a week.  MayB put the names of the products into the search box on the Forum: make notes ;-).  Do you keep a mood/food/symptom diary?

You can get an NHS referral to a menopause clinic. 

Many symptoms are due to a drop in oestrogen levels: this can cause the body to become dry, inside and out.  Scalp, skin, vagina, deep in the ears, eyes.  4 me it was itchy insteps when I took off socks at night prior to stepping into the bath  :o and across the back of my scapulae.  So using a good quality hand cream regularly has helped.

Olive oil into the itchy ears to ease any dryness down there as well as the above cream on the outer ear regions, difficult to scratch!   Eye drops - ask your Phramcasist for something appropriate or buy over the counter.  'optrex' is a good product to try but must be used regularly.

Prior to each period I would feel breathless which went immediately the bleed began is there a cyclic aspect to this 4 U?  As for aching muscles this can also be caused by a lack of oestrogen and should be eased with over the counter pain relief taken regularly. I have restless legs, several bananas a week cured that.  Or  2 'nurofen' if it bothers me at night. 

Dizzyness/nausea can be surges of adrenaline caused by hormonal ups and downs.  I was told by NAPS to eat every 3 hours, even in the night and that advice certainly saved my Life.  Even 20 years after I still keep to regular eating to stop that awful lurch when the body is hungry = intense sickness feelings. 

Low mood can be eased by appropriate anti-depressant medication - some require that with HRT.  Also any anxiety can be helped with an emergency drug "as necessary".  Don't give up hope!
