My hot flashes took over my life —I wasn’t sleeping, I couldn’t concentrate at work, I was irritable at home with my kids. I went on HRT and within 10 days I felt so much better. My hot flashes had decreased substantially, I was sleeping better, I was productive at work, happier at home. I felt like myself again. After 3 weeks on HRT, I hardly ever get a hot flash. I have more energy and I feel joyful about my life.

It’s not necessarily the right thing for you and consider lifestyle changes first.

HRT worked fantastically. Unfortunately the doctors will no longer prescribe to me because I was diagnosed with breast cancer. But they can NOT say fir definite that this was due...
