“Just trying to demystify and destigmatise HRT.
“It occurred to me that because we don’t talk about it some of you might like to see what it is, and how u put it on .
“I didn’t mention that the progesterone part of my hrt I get from the mirena coil #menopause #menopausing #HRT.”

“But has made a big difference to her life. The sticky bit and challenge ripping off is worth the effort.
