Re: how did you know?

my doc just gave me a script for Vivelle Dot and told me to slap one on my butt if I started to have menopausal symptoms. That was all the education that I got. She was a weird doctor. She never really had much time to do anything right. First impressions are usually right. She even botched my surgery, but I digress. I started having night sweats, hot and cold flashes, headaches daily, and nausea, and my skin started to become very sensitive and I had acne outbreaks. I thought I could handle all this on my own without HRT, but I couldn't. I put one of the patches on after reading the instructions and pros and cons in addition to asking my sisters on here what to do... and most of the symptoms have disappeared.

I had a near identical experience. Planned to go without. Within 10 days of surgery, severe night sweats, heart pounding, terrible insomnia and agitation, crying spells that I could not control and then a migraine put me over the edge. Called the doc = ordered me an estrogen patch and within three days, peace. Now I am scared to ever take it off and its only been four weeks.

Night sweats, anxiety, hot flashes, and cried at the drop of a hat, insomnia. When I went to see my dr. about this he just smiled and said "Lisa you need to be put on a hormone replacement now" I don't know who was happier me or my dh.
