Early 30s Menopause after treatment - non HRT advice

Hi ladies, 

 

hope you're all doing okay in these strange times xx 

I'm just wondering if there is anyone on here who is post treatment, menopause, and not taking HRT?? I'm 3 years post treatment now and as much as I try not to let it get me down, I'm really struggling with my hips and bones, besides the aches, pains, etc.  I'm starting to sound like a 1 woman band of clicks & creaks winklaughing ha! 

I've been taking vit D, B6 which seem to have kept things at bay but I'm worried whether I should be taking something else? I've asked about HRT and been given very grey answers but also told because of where my cancer was that I shouldn't have it...I've been back to the GP to ask for a referral to a menopause specialist recently because I'm worried about how this affects things and further down the line with only being early 30's...

Has anyone else had this or got any advice? 

Lots of love ❤️

Hi bumblebee, i just taught id pop in and share my experience with the menopause,  i was simalr to yourself and was 34 when i start going through the menopause,  my team didn feel comfortable givin me hrt , so for two yrs i went through the change until i couldn take the hot flushes any more , so i brought it up with my team and they told me there was an antidepressant i could take that was non hormonal,  and its been amazing no more flushes , reduced night sweats and no more anxiety,  its the best decision i ever made i would of never taken them in the past , but im so glad i started on them , hope this helps , melissa x x
