      Hi Sonya, This can happen during menopause, due to changes in fluid balance/ blood pressure after urinating or the bowel moving. It tends to happen if your circulatory system is quite sensitive anyway.

    I have been on her for a year but I got really itchy in unmentionable places so I stopped. Wow I now feel wretched and would rather die than carry on. But what is the best thing to do.

      Hi Dawn Unfortunately, even if you have been on HRT for a short while once you stop, especially if you do it quickly, this can trigger a sudden hormonal fall back down to your own natural level and this can cause all sorts of menopause symptoms! I would go back to your doctor and explain how you are feeling, there are lots of different kinds of HRT and they may be able to find one that doesn't give you the side effects you had before. If you want to do it naturally you may find the Menopause Support can help to ease your symptoms and acupuncture can often be beneficial and re-balancing the hormones after stopping HRT.

    Does the menopause affect your blood pressure and have more bad headaches

      Hi Rachel Unfortunately, this can happen, we know that falling oestrogen can affect blood pressure and this in turn may cause headaches.However, headaches can be caused by other factors so it is a good idea to get them checked out by your doctor. In the meantime you may find a magnesium suppelement 200mg twice a day and lots of water can help.
