I am a 65 yr old female who recently went off HRT after nearly 10 years. I loved being on the hormones, but had some issues with spotting and then breast cysts. MY GYN suggested I wean off of the HRT, which I did over a long period of time. Now, I am again having hot flashes, and I've been assured by my GYN that vaginal dryness will most likely be another menopause symptom before long. I have heard from a few people about the bio-identical hormones and was wondering if anyone on this forum has any experience with them. Is it too late at age 65 to start them? Unfortunately, I live in a state where hardly any doctors prescribe them. I would appreciate any feedback.
