Menopause - Few Symptoms - HRT?
Well, I've been in menopause for about 18 months. I have a short/mild hot flash or two every week - always when I'm under stress - my life is pretty stress-free. I don't have vaginal dryness - my hair is thick and my skin is dry but good. I have taken no hormone therapy of any kind. I don't sleep at night but then I never did - so its hard for me to compare before/after menopause sleep. I see the commercials about taking HRT and shrinking - what about that? I am 5'10" and could probably shrink an inch or two - is that a bad thing? I had a hysterectomy when I was 37, I'm 51 now and I have my ovaries - non-functioning at this point I guess. I am open to suggestions. Enlighten me ladies, my symptoms are almost non-existent - would you go on HRT if you were me?
