"treatment for perimenopausal symptoms"

About: Shropshire and Staffordshire

(as the patient),

I have sailed through my teenage years with my periods ariving every 28 days lasting 5 days at the most and had no trouble whatsoever until I reached 52 then I felt as iff a black cloud had arrived my periods became very infrequent my moods were desperate and at one point I felt suicidal with depression something I have never suffered with before I was having hot sweats sleepless nights and the most worrying symptom was Anxiety about nothing at all I tried all sorts of over the counter supplements nothing worked eventually my Anxiety built up to such a level that I ended up at my GPs (park medical well women centre) and was prescribed Diazepan for a two weeks and now I am on Climagest 1mg which has literely saved my life although it does worry me slightly because of the risks involved but I dont smoke I am teetotal I am not overweight and I am very active so I think the odds are in my favour I hope so as climagest has made me me again
