I have been trying to get a level on combined HRT that suits me, 5O patch definately did not cover sweats nor headache, 100 patch didn't take away headache, 150 patch did, though I seem to have noticed some other symptoms like I woke up a few days after with pimples on my face and decoletè (yuck) and sorry tmi (when I wipe I can smell quite an unusual smell on 150 patch, its a hard to describe scent, not my own, its like something like animalistic, maybe uncooked poultry, sorry it's a very odd scent.
I am also feeling ludicrously tired on all hrt strengths, needing afternoon naps, though I dunno how much I need to attribute these ^ symptoms I've mentioned to being 8 weeks post total hysterectomy maybe the scent is healing and nor hormones 🤔
I'm still feeling heavy and notice on the HRT my neck n shoulders feel stiff plus my leg or ankle can feel dead when arising after sitting.
I'm just interested in opinions on hrt experiences and if any of these symptoms improve. I've got a few blue days too, generally not feeling like it's been an immediate help or tonic as some women swear by it.
Maybe I'm too early in, approx 7weeks?
Patches are Evorel Combined and in 50's, right now I'm on 150, I'm under 40 so need lots of energy with a pre school child at home.
Thanks to all!
