Been on estrodial 2mg 1 mth- post menopausal At 49- have Myrena progesterone iud for other issues. side effects estrodial gained 4kg, increased my depression and anxiety, head congestion, back feet and joint pain plus more- though sweats and flashes and dry v better. But side effects too bad. Does vivelle dot have less side efects than estrodial tablet - in particular does cause weight gain also?? Appreciate any advice As these side effects worse than menopause symptoms thanks in advance for any help - is there an alternate natural supplement that may help eg Swisse menopause tabs
