That's amazing. Thanks so much for replying.

You said earlier that your lucette pill didnt have enough E in it for you. So you switched from a 30mg combined pill to hrt - and find this better???

Thanks x

CrispyChick pointed out this thread to me; I just started Slynd and so far I love it.  I was on 200 mg progesterone nightly and having two periods a month and some other problematic sx.  I'm perimenopausal and am using it with .1125 estradiol patch.

I was scared to try Slynd because I had read some negative reviews, but they may have all been from younger people who had not yet begun perimenopause.

I am in the U.S. and it wasn't hard to get it; many online pharmacies here will prescribe it.  I think I am paying around $20 US for a pack here, with insurance.

That's great news! I just wish the UK would be a bit quicker to catch up. It's available, but for only one website to sell it and alot of GPs being reluctant to prescribe it, I think is ridiculous and really frustrating.

I don't think very many people know about it here either; I've seen friends moved from progesterone to the mirena where's it's obviously not working great and slynd is never mentioned.  I'm not sure everyone knows the profile is significantly different than the previous progestin only birth control.  I really trust my clinician and she says it's great, and that most people feel better on it.

In case others are reading this post, I have read that people can be hungry or tired the first couple of weeks on Slynd.  I am definitely noticing I am eating more, nothing crazy, but overall I feel a lot better.

Interested to hear others' experiences over time.
