I too would like to chip in with my message of hope too. I'm really happy as the sh level test I had came back at 76 and post menopausal. Thats it then as far as I'm concerned, i did it !!
I have had 4 natural births and after periods up until 2 yrs ago. I have had no issues with fibroids or other gyny problems.
I am celebrating the fact that my body menstruated, birthed, lactated and went through menopause and shot me out the other end, older wiser and proud !
I have experienced hot flushes, insomnia and weight gain and a low thyroid but they have all been under control this past year and I have never taken hrt or hormone supplements.
I am in awe of my body and its ability to do all that it can. We women should celebrate the wonder of it and our strength.
We are awesome <3

Thank you and glad you're in a better place
It's so good to see thr success stories as it's hum nature to vanish once life is back on track so the forums tend to,be filled with posts that lean toward the negative hard times

Best of luck in your life x

Yes there is marilynchaisson - I hope the post have given you hope.  For some us it's a really struggle but it can get easier for most. It has taken me 3 years in total and 7 months on new hrt regime to start to feel better - some slog but just don't give up.
Are you joining our happy band and looking for help?

It's great to hear messages of hope and to know that there is often light at the end of the tunnel..

I am 1 yr 7 months post menopause.

About a yr after last period I had foot joint stiffness/ache and quite intense hot flushes/ night sweats. I took hrt but it was really bad for me and I came off it after only 2 months. I am glad that I did as my symptoms have got less and less since and I now only have mild hot flushes now and again. If I was still taking hrt I would not have known that my symptoms are all but gone.. x

I would just like to share a quick insight to my perimenopause story!
10 months ago I was suddenly hit by constant crying for no reason, unable to sleep,lost a stone in weight within 6 weeks and worst of all crippling anxiety!  I had the perfect life and a wonderful family bit none of that mattered at the time! I went to se my GP and was put straight one Femostan 1mg tablets! Long story short, I have tried 3 different types of HRT and only now am I able to say I am getting some of my life back! I am currently on 2 pumps estradiol gel and 0.5mg Zumenon 100mg progesterone for 7 days along with melatonin for sleep and problems and vitamins! I'm still hoping things will improve more as time goes on. I have Testosterone which I will start in a few weeks time to see if it helps with fatigue problems but for now I am content with where I am and keeping everything crossed my severe symptoms do not return! Good luck to everyone it will get better it is just finding the right balance of treatment
