I am excited about my newest health journey! BHRT bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. I have read about it for years and have been interested in it for a while.
A few months ago I started being crankier, having more trouble sleeping, having night sweats, anxiety, brain fog, fatigue, my b/p has gone up slightly( enough to make my PCP want to try Meds), my sexual desire has diminished (plus there is no sensation if you know what I mean) and its just painful. These symptoms propelled me into action so I found a few more books and then a NP who specializes in BHRT. She ran some blood tests and it turns out my T3 is low, my d3 is VERY low, progesterone and testosterone are VERY low. Bioidentical hormone creams, hypothyroid meds and vitamin d(compound) have been rxed for me,I am very excited to start them and feel better!
It's no wonder people get divorced after 25yrs of marriage, perimenopause isn't for sissies! Thank God I have an incredibly understanding and supportive husband who loves me very much.
