Minivelle and Weight Gain
Started using Minivelle in July, the hot flashes went away almost inmmediately and I am sleeping much better but I have gained 15 pounds without any change in my eating habits or activity levels.... I am stopping Minivelle, I rather live with the hot flashes !
Minivelle - it works
Hit flashing all day, no sleep, irritable, no sex, moody and emotional. A total mess! Started minivelle on Thursday, had knee throb for a couple of hours. It subsided and has not returned. Today is Saturday and I feel great. Sleeping all night, had 2 mild hit flashes today. I am one happy camper!
Minivelle and weight gain
Started Minivelle 0.05 in February. The HRT worked almost immediately...no hot flashes, sleeping thorough the night, great mood, feeling amazing! Then... the weight gain began. Today it has been exactly five months since I started using the patch, but I have gained #10. I am also experiencing pain when I get up, walk, or stand.
Will stop the HRT for one month. Afterwards, I need to have new blood tests done and see my GYN for results. Will need to double my gym time to two-hours per day, 3-4 x/week. Watch what I eat, and journal my symptoms every day.
minivelle is not sticking!
