Re: menopause Going Out Of My Mind

Try the HRT. NOthing bad will happen from trying it for a couple of months. If it works, then keep taking it! If it doesn't, then stop. Very simple.

Re: Colposcopy ... Scared!

ONLY if it was high grade dyskarios should you have the colposcopy. If it was low grade, it will resolve on its own. Again,they have not given you all the information you need.

Re: And I thought I was NORMAL ... hello 53

The provera is a big hit to stop the period so it can make you feel wonky. Sounds like you need to be on HRT to level things once they check everything out.

Re: Has anybody else gone crazy while taking birth control??

Some women just can't tolerate birth control. I would talk with your gyno about it as it seems you are one. Perhaps a Mirena IUD would work better.

The Mirena IUD is another option along with other non hormonal methods. She needs to investigate those with her gyno...and she might try a female one for this. They just "get it" more than males!

It's possible HRT could help. It doesn't work for everyone. Did you tolerate birth control well? Then it will probably work for you. If it didn't, there are other options.
