I have just recovered from the removal of one tube/ovary and a large endometrial cyst. The other tube is too damaged to do its job and I now have a diagnosis of endo. I am due to start IVF in August but in the meantime I have been prescribed Livial HRT to help control my hot flashes and mood swings as my hormones are actually insane at the moment. I am really quiet adverse to taking them as I am worried about gaining more weight. I smashed on about a stone during the six months I was on Clomid and have lost 10lbs of that since coming off. I hated how I felt on Clomid - a bloated, angry, sweaty mess! I have read that HRT will help prep my uterus for IVF too as it thickens the lining. However the pills are still sitting in their box. Am I being a selfish asshole here? Can someone tell me their own experiences on HRT?
