Customer Question
I stopped taking HRT...

I stopped taking HRT and now I am bleeding as if having a period. How long will the bleeding last and is this normal?

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

No pain. I had not had a period for about 4 years. I was having menopause symptoms so we started estradiol and progesterone. I felt worse so I stopped.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, I am pretty healthy and now I wish I had just let it all run it's course.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I am 58. I stopped taking it about 9 days ago. I only took it for about one month and felt worse.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No ma'am, thanks anyway. I thought this would be simple, but if I get charged with each reply/response, I will have to pass.
Have a great day!
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I don't think it's fair to charge the $38 since my question was not answered. Instead I was asked two questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
