HRT has changed my life

I am so glad I tried it. I was scared to death to give it a try because of all the negative reports but my doctor assured me the risks weren't as bad as reports made them sound. I am so glad I did as my whole life seems to be changed. I sleep better at night and just bought a new sweater. :-)

Fantastic, Brenda!!   It is good to hear a positive report from one of our members!  I used estrogen (Premarin) for about 20 years and can honestly say that I had no negative effects from it (of which I am aware!) and most definitely did benefit from using it. I did have my doctor begin lowering my dose after about 10 years as I started out on the highest possible dose, but we did that gradually and I suffered no problems with it.

Please keep us posted on how you are doing!   And please know that you are welcome here anytime; to vent (it really can help!); to ask questions; to share experiences; or to just hang out with other gals who understand and care.

Remember, there are NO dumb questions regarding menopause!
