dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (0,5/2,5MG) for Premature menopause

I was on Femoston for years Starting with the lower dose. At first it improved my moods but the night sweats never really went away for long then came back with a vengeance.

dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (1/5MG) for Menopause

I have been on this HRT treatment for years. I have no side effects at all and can thoroughly recommend. Hot flushes and night sweats stopped after about a week and have never returned (unless I leave it too long before starting the next 28-day cycle). I take Femoston 1/10.

dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (1/5mg) for menopause

I've been using femoston for 7 months now and don't have any more problems with my menopause symptoms but recently I've had a lot of pain in my breasts. I can't even touch them. And the 14-day considerable breakthrough bleeding, they don't last so long but they are much worse. Has anyone else had this kind of problem and does it go away?

I've just started taking femoston. I am 46 and am suffering terribly with hot flushes. I haven't had a period for about 8 months. I've read so many different opinions about this medicine. I'm curious!

dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (1/10) for menopause

Because of mood swings etc caused by the menopause and which were exacerbated by my other issues, I wanted to try Femoston. After 3 days I started menstruating and 3 weeks later it still hadn't finished. Sometimes very heavy bleeding. On top of that also incredibly tired, so bad that I suddenly fell asleep in the bank. Muscle pain and stiffness. Sweating and terribly short of breath during exer...

dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (1/5mg) for menopause

To start off with it seemed to help… But after a few weeks I started waking up in the mornings really grumpy and was negative all day long towards myself, everything and everyone… i did have these symptoms before I started using this (I also take the antidepressant paroxetine; not exactly the best combination!). But it does seem that they have got worse since I have been taking this hormone pre...
