This might sound like a weird question but I've been on hrt for three months now following surgery and had no side affects at all apart from post-op pain of course. However this past week coupled with hip pain which I've started to get again I have had some really bad stomach cramps and also tender nipples. If I didn't know better I'd would say I was due to have a period which I obviously can't. So I just wondered if its possible that this could be something to do with the hrt or is it just my body dealing with the changes to my body?

Hi Smiley

Sorry I cant help out very much but just to say that I often have feelings as though my period is due to start. However I have had a hysterectomy so I know this is an impossible task even though I do at times feel hormonal.

I do not know what the answer is apart from maybe your body is fighting against the HRT in some way? Your body is thinking its due to have a period but the HRT is preventing it from doing so?

Just a thought and sorry if it doesnt make much sense.
