"My experience with hrt"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) / Gynaecology St Helier Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I have been on HRT patches evorel 50 for 3 weeks, the hot flushes have stopped, I was having problems with sleep this is still as bad, the patches make me extremely tired but just cant sleep.

It has had a major effect on my gastro problems though has acid reflux for over 5 years and completely cured it. I just want to know if its normal for the tiredness feeling and if it passes.

I have also now regained my libido which is amazing. I had a partial hysterectomy in 2013 ovaries remained and started to hit perimenopause last year, my Dr suggested I go in patches. Any advice be great thanks xx
