I have been using HRT patches for approx 4 months now but am beginning to wonder why. Initially my shortness of breath was relieved by HRT but my Levo dose was decreased 7 weeks ago and the shortness of breath is returning.
I now question why I even need HRT? My Mum didn't have any replacement and women for millennia didn't have it. I'd passed through the menopause without even realising, apart from my periods stopping. The GP suggested taking HRT after dismissing my malaise as being thyroid related.
I'm pretty sure the on going health issues I have are not due to menopause and I can do without HRT side affects.
Any views please?
