doctor gave me estrogel a week ago still haven't used it
Hi there, i had a hysterectomy at the age of 22, had HRT for the first few months. I am now 42 and have been having dizziness, what feels like heart palpation, hot flashes, (which i think was some sort of flu bug as my whole family was having them too) anxiety, hair loss and general aches and pains. I'm scared to even try using the estrogel pump, for fear of the side effects. Am i crazy not to?
