Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
Hi, im a 49 year old English woman who is really suffering at the moment. I decided to try HRT a couple of weeks ago due to suffering bad symptoms of menopause. However....I don't know how long it takes to kick in! im on the 1mg dose of Estelle duet and up to now im feeling worse than I did before I started taking it. im so tired, my joints ache and I have no energy at all. My partner is getting a bit fed up with me . The sex has gone out of the window as I simply have no energy. Don't know what to do. Its only my second week of taking the white tabs. the green ones start on sunday. I would be interested in talking to women who are taking this type to find out if it gets better.

My Passions:
animals, countryside.

My Challenges:
to feel better

My Vision for the Future:
to be myself again

Hello and welcome!

Hi Gurkysgirl,

Thanks for joining World Pulse! It's good to have you here.

I'm really sorry you're suffering a lot right now. I hope you find the help you're looking for, soon! This probably isn't the best place to find help for your particular problem. There's a website in England called "Mumsnet" where you may be able to network with women about your prescription:

It's helpful to read through the World Pulse "Getting Started" guide to give you an overview of how to network in the online community here:

This guide will walk you through how to post a "need" and share resources, among other things.

In the meantime, sending you every good wish that you feel back to yourself again soon!



"I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being."
