This survey is open to all female Gransnet and Mumsnet users who live in the UK. All who complete the survey will be entered into a prize draw where one GNer or MNer will win a £100 voucher for the store of their choice (from a list).

Thanks and good luck!

"My doctor diagnosed ant-depressants" - what the heck does that mean? Do they mean prescribed?

Done, but not a very well thought out survey, IMO.

Done but difficult to make a generalised comment on all GPs.

Didn't ask about women, like me, who sailed through the menopause - mid forties-with no problems at all and never took any drugs. I was glad to see the back of periods so early, lucky me.

Done my gp was good

All done.

I have to be honest I found some of the questions difficult to answer as I did not have very significant symptoms but the brain-fog and memory problems continue so it is difficult to say how long the menopause lasted/how far I'm past it as I don't yet know whether this is a permanent change or will eventually improve.

SuperMum1 Thu 10-Oct-19 10:25:46

Done thank you.

I found the worst thing was GP's making you feel guilty for asking for repeat prescriptions of HRT, I got so fed up of being told 'shouldnt you be off those by now' being given reams of print outs about risks, I just went cold turkey off HRT as I could not stand the stress of getting repeat prescriptions

libra10 Thu 10-Oct-19 11:32:01

All done

Jacqi Thu 10-Oct-19 13:25:07

All done, Doctors need to find a better way to deal with menopause then to just making it easy on them and putting you on anti depressants, which doesn't help, makes you worse with other symptoms, and doesn't even get rid of your problem. It is worse than giving patients paracetamol by the box full, but this just seems to happen more and more in the UK...treat the symptoms not the cause.... Hence just causing more problems and extreme pain for the patients they are supposed to be making better.....
