Trouble getting off HRT
I recently wrote saying after three months of gradually cutting down to just one Livial a week that I was starting to get irritable and quick tempered.Unfortunately this seems to be getting worse and depression is creeping in so I am taking a tablet more often.
I followed the sheet to come off over three months and now don't know what to do. If I knew that these feelings would go after a few weeks then I would persevere but I can't stand to feel like this indefinately especially as I have a special holiday coming up in a month to celebrate my 50th. It's affecting my family and i'm feling weepy and am worried that I will go to far when I get wound up like I used to with pmt.
Just to recap I had my ovaries removed 10 years ago mainly because of my horrendous pmt and the aggressiveness. I've been taking Livial ever since. I'm close to giving up and due to my doctor's lack of experience in this subject I don't know who to turn to for advice. Does this mean that I need some other hormone to supplement the cream which I am using twice a day? Please help with any advice.
