Do it! I battled with the doctors for about 3 years because they wouldn't give me HRT because of high blood pressure. Had a hysterectomy very early on (36/37 yo)...
In only 2 months ALL of my symptoms have improved including the flushes, night sweats, libido etc. I also suffer from migraines. My migraines have also decreased in frequency!! If you've not got issues that make you high risk e.g. breast cancer in the family, I highly recommend trying the HRT.
I did my research into perimenopause symptoms (as my periods are every two weeks - so haven't stopped bleeding to be classed as menopausal), also looked at different HRT, did the greene climateric scale test so I had the results for my GP & looked at the NICE guidelines on diagnosing peri/menopause so I couldn't be fobbed off. I asked the GP for a trial of HRT. Knew I wanted patches as they're lowest risk & ok to use by migraine sufferers. It took a couple of tries to get the right combination but I'm now on oestrogen patches all month & progesterone tablets for 2 weeks each month.
