My breasts are enormous and sore. I have also gained weight. Im sure this is normal but anyone who quit... can you tell me how long this may last??
You can't really say you quit cold turkey. Estradiol isn't a drug that causes dependence and the proper way to stop it is to just stop it. I stopped it and had no after effects. Since its estrogen that usually causes breast tenderness, I have no idea why stopping it would do that.
Omg same here! Im about to email my doc and get back on it. Im 52. Been on it for @7 yrs but was still getting a period and having break thru the rest of the time so she told me i could stop. I quit "cold turkey" about 3 mo ago. Now im going nuts every night like my body has no temp control! Helpp!! Someone tell us it will stop! Although i havent had a period at all since. Do not miss that!
Do some research, like i did, don't follow a non Dr advice,
