Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Are you feeling ill effects from the HRT that you are now taking? If so, you need to talk to your doctor about coming off it and/or alternatives.

Since you are only 42, you may be on it for a lot longer (as long as you are comfortable with it) because coming off it may cause all the symptoms of menopause - many of them unpleasant (unfortunately).

Good luck,
