Menopause/HRT/health + 

One good piece of news I got this week, I'm officially postmenopausal - woo hoo!

And I saw a really good GP who listened to me and we had a good discussion about the symptoms I'm experiencing and the options available. In the end, I've started on HRT, because it's meant to be good for reducing the problems of a lot of postmenopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, UTIs, night sweets, general headaches etc.

It will be interesting to see how I go and hopefully improve. Particularly as there is quite a bit of crossover between some symptoms and postmenopausal ones.

I'm really glad I had read The Menopause Manifesto (Dr Jen Gunter) because it meant I could have a really good discussion with the doc and understood what she was talking about and was able to make an informed decision.

Feel really happy to have had a positive health experience.
