HRT for me!! Those of you that are frightened of them, and don't have a medical reason for not taking them can read a study called the womens Heath intitiative. It explains the hype about all the increased risks of things, and also explains the benefits in some areas. The most dangerous risk associated is blood clots, and that is easily addressed by taking a baby aspirin, or in my case, I take gingko biloba.
there is nothing to fear, and the return to feeling like yourself is definitely worth it. I struggled for a few months before I resorted to the HRT, and the relief was instantaneous. I attempted to cut the dose in half, and was miserable. I intend to take them forever.
