Off HRT for 6 months. Should I go back on?

I have been off HRT for 6 months. Have symptoms like joint pain and no libido. Should I go back on? I didn't give it much of a chance to work. Have this thing about taking medications but now I'm reconsidering. What do you think? Anyone okay not on HRT?

Is there a reason you got off? I would talk to the doctor to see if you benefit by being on it.

Re: Off HRT for 6 months. Should I go back on?

My main reason was just to see how bad I was going to feel. Some women don't have really awful symptoms. I know people who never experienced anything. For me its been minimal hot flashes, I sleep pretty well.
My worst symptom is the joint pain. All over. I know my doctor will say to go back on HRT. Anyway thanks for responding.....

Re: Off HRT for 6 months. Should I go back on?

It's a very individual decision. However, there are health risks associated with not using any estrogen, especially if you are younger than the age at which you'd have gone through menopause naturally, and you may not have any symptoms to indicate that you're at risk.

If you are not going to be on HRT, please at least have regular DEXA scans. Bone mass loss is huge the first year after the ovaries are removed, and you wouldn't know it's happening until it's too late.
