Gina explains if she worries about the side effects associated with hormone replacement therapy.

Gina:
I don’t even consider the side effects because I really believe our mind has an awful lot to do, if not almost everything to do, with how we feel, and I haven’t even read this list of side effects. I don’t even want to know them because I know I feel better, and my mind is better so everything else is just falling into place. I am able to get up in the morning. I am able to go to work. I am able to have conversations. I haven’t had a panic attack since.

So who cares what they are? It really doesn’t matter. I feel, and I can remember I had a woman respond to me on the EmpowHer website, and she said, “The same thing happened to me. I went on the pill, and I feel like I am in my 20s again.” And it’s not saying I want to look like I am 20 again. I want to, you know, we can’t go back, but we can always feel like that. You really can.

So, and that’s just me. It may not be for everyone, but I know it helped me. I haven’t had to have another surgery since. I am regular, and I’m sure there will come a point when I am completely through menopause where I have my levels checked again, and I may not need hormones anymore. But I’ll just cross that bridge when it comes because right now I am hormone bound.
