HRT Questions

Hello sisters,

Just a few questions about HRT. I was on HRT for 10 years and my GP took me off it at the beginning of last year coz I had high blood pressure. Firsly has anyone here been taken off it for high blood pressure or is anyone her on HRT while they have high blood pressure?? My gyn has told me it doesn't make a difference but then why has my GP took me off it?? I'm slightly confused. Anyway, since I have been off it I am getting a number of problems, firstly with facial hair! My god its driving me insane with these sprouting hairs on my chin that I have to pluck out every morning. I'm feeling like a man. Has anyone else got this problem? Secondly I used to be able to get away with washing my hair twice a week but now I have to do it every day as it gets really greasy. Has anyone else got this? I know they are only trivial things but I am only 37 years old and this is all hgetting me down. Do u think I would benefit from going back on HRT?

Thanks for reading my post and I hope I get some advice about this. Thanks sisters

Re: HRT Questions

I've had high blood pressure for about 10 years, and have been on HRT most of that time. I am also taking blood pressure meds that control it. I also don't smoke and I'm a normal weight.

Re: HRT Questions

Hi sodapopper, thanks for your reply. I am also on meds to control my blood pressure and I don't smoke although I am a little over weight. That's made me feel better about going back on it. I really don't know why 2 doctors would contradict each other. Do u mind me asking how old are u? I am 37 and do u think I would benefit from goiing back on HRT coz I am still quite young? Thanks again for replying, vicky

Re: HRT Questions

I'm 53, I had early menopause when I was 42, and my MD said to go on on HRT at least until the average menopause age which is 51. I stopped them when I was about 48, and everything was fine until the hysto,(ovaries removed too) when I was 51, so I started back up. I would be concerned too, you seem pretty young.
