Hi, I am writing this just hoping that people here can help me sharing experiences with me. I am 41 and started menopause at 39, at that time, was ok with me, my gynecologist prescribe me vivelle dot and prometrium (progesterene), i totally believed her, but i am so scared when i start reading everything online. I did start those 2 years ago and stopped, start and stopped, now that i just found out that my bone density results show osteopenia, (early sign of osteosporoses), i am more scared and it is one more reason for me to take the hormones. i try just to accept that, but it is so hard, at age 41, so many thing happening bcause os menopause. My belly is ridiculous huge, i am always bloated, and no matter what i do, can not loose weight. Do exercise 5 times a week and watch what i eat. Any experience to share with me? thank you so much. I am desperate right nowView Thread
