OK LET’S take a CLOSER look at the HRT crisis: 

Earlier this week, the government announced it was rationing supplies so women would only be able to get three months’ worth of certain HRT products at a time. It has also appointed a new HRT tsar to help solve the crisis. 

HRT is the hormones your doctor prescribes to replace, or supplement, the ones your body doesn’t make anymore. Most women who use it take a combination of estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen is what helps most with symptoms like hot flashes and vaginal dryness; progesterone is added to protect against uterine cancer and bone loss (osteoporosis).

What does it feel like to be off your HRT?

For many women they are unable to work. Women are suffering from exhaustion, anxiety, night sweats, joint ache, mood swings. Some are saying that they are suffering from  PHYSICAL breakdowns. 

We will keep you updated, but this is heartbreaking.
