Hi, at fifty-nine, I'm just over week in taking HRT and experiencing a degree of nausea, upset stomach, bloating, just feeling rubbish really. was able to run for the first time for a week today, and had a dreadful run. Admittedly this may partly have been due in part to lingering dehydration and overheating after a very hot day on the beach on our school trip. I just wondered if other women who have taken HRT found that the side effects wore off and how long it took. The thing is, despite all the very inconvenient menopausal problems, my running has been going really well, and kept me going. If HRT is going to compromise that I feel like I might quit now!
