Is there an age post-menopause at which you should stop taking HRT?

Everyone’s situation is different. Generally speaking, we recommend that HRT be used as the lowest dose possible for the shortest period of time to manage menopausal symptoms.

  1. I will be 50 in a few weeks. Just before Christmas I had some very terrible symptoms that started with muscle stiffness and joint pain, irritability, anxiety, depression, fear, nervousness, the body and mind did not shut down to sleep. I did not know these were menopause symptoms since I still have my period. I started with Hormonal Balance and now take the Menopause formula. After being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis for years and taking anti-inflammatory medication, I am pain free since using hormonal balance for just 2 weeks. My symptoms have all gone, I sleep peacefully and feel normal again. I believe my body pain was hormonal related.
