Am I menopausal even though I’m taking HRT?

Question: I had a total hysterectomy several year ago and I have been on 1mg of oestrogen per day with 1mg of top up gel to use if and when I feel the need (which I haven’t for quite some time).

I will be 50 shortly and now seem to be experiencing some menopause symptoms, Lack of sleep, uncomfortably hot in bed (no flushes or sweats) and I seem to be very teary. Will my body still undergo changes due to time of life?

Our Answer: It sounds like you should visit your GP to have your hormone levels checked and maybe talk about a change of either the brand or dose – it is quite common for your body’s needs to change over time.
