Hi Bluenose & welcome to the forum.
Starting any new type of HRT can take up to 3 months to settle down & getting spotting / bleeding can happen.
There are several topics/threads on here that may help you.

https://www.menopausematters.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,40380.msg640167.html#msg640167

https://www.menopausematters.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,36345.msg585407.html#msg585407

I haven't read through all of them but hoping they may help you.

Introduce yourself on the new members section so that other members can welcome you.
Thank you so much for your help.

Try supplementing with plenty of magnesium. It helps us relax but when we are stressed we burn through it.
Try magnesium malate, taurate or threonate.

Tried magnesium citrate iv tried so many things I also have a micro adenoma on my pituitary which endocrinologist is not concerned about just now but that regulates stress hormone I'm totally confused nothing seems to be working for me

Hi All, Iím new on here  :) iím 51 next week and my periods have been scarce for a couple of years and have stopped since September last.. For years I have been suffering from depression, anxiety etc.. plus I have a severe case of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis) so have not been able to work for over 5 years.. Iím on a ridiculous amount of medication including 100mg Sertraline, amitriptyline, lorazepam plus IBD medication and suffer from
Asthma (otherwise Iím all good  8) ) Iím having the most horrendous day and night flushes and mood, anxiety real bad so my doctor put me on Evoril Sequi to try this Thursday to try for 3 months.. Strangely enough I had the best nights sleep on Thursday night with minimal sweats, but last night was awful  ??? Is this normal and does anyone think Iím risking my body taking HRT with my health problems? Feel so nervous about it all  :-\ Iíve been reading through this forum for a few days now, how brilliantly set up it is.. thank you in anticipation- Ninaduff

Ninaduff - Doubt very much that HRT will have a negative effect on your health issues - it may well help reduce them.  Finding the right HRT can be trial and error though so let us know how you get on with this HRT type.

It will take a few weeks or even months for the HRT to fully work itís magic but improvement in sleep can often kick in quite quickly.

I have IBD in my family - older sister has Crohns and younger sister has Ulcerative colitis ( younger sister is actually married to eminent gastroenterologist!).  I didnít have digestive problems until I stopped HRT - I now have to be very careful with my diet.   I had a premature menopause so used HRT for nearly 25 years and I think it helped to prevent many of the problems I am experiencing now. I do a lot of walking and Mindfulness which helps to keep anxiety and fatigue under control quite a bit. I do believe that yoga/Pilates and sensible exercise, like brisk walking, are really crucial to help cope with the menopause.
I hope things improve for you soon.  DG x

Thanks so much for that Dancinggirl  :) my diet is very limited and I try to exercise as much as I can when not in too much pain.. Iím now on my third day and I have found Iím extremely tired and not slept that good the last 2 nights, still have horrendous sweats and serious gas which in turn effects the UC.. like you say it takes time for it to come into effect.. Iíll be patient  ::) thanks again 👍🏻 So good to chat  :)
