First two weeks...Great! No hot flashes, no night sweats, sleeping through the night. Then, 31 days of heavy bleeding started, ankles and feet started swelling, weakness and shortness of breath followed. Had to go off and have no intention of ever trying again.

I have been on .5mg for almost 3 months now. Vaginal dryness has decreased. I am sleeping better and have an occasional hot flash. My breast are very tender and some mild uterine discomfort. But havent had any break through bleeding.

Comment:
Started Activella early in menopause and have had NO adverse symptoms. However, experiencing drop in libido, and my husband and I are both upset about it. But sex is great once he "warms me up"! Anyone else experience libido problems? Doctor says that has nothing to do with menopause/HRT but things I read online seem to differ.

I have taken Activella for 3 months. I drive alot about 180 miles every 2 weeks. I've noticed that it has made me very nervous when I drive a distance and also it makes my vision somewhat blurred. Had to stop taking it.

I JUST STARTED TAKING THIS 2 WEEKS AGO AND I HAVE NOTICED SOME IMPROVEMENT. THE HOT FLASHES AREN'T AS BAD, THE NIGHT SWEATS HAVE LESSENED,I'M NOT AS FORGETFUL SO FAR SO GOOD MAYBE A STRONGER DOSE?? I'M ON THE 0.5 AND I WILL BE WAITING 2 MORE WEEKS TO SEE HOW THIS WILL GO BEFORE CONSULTING WITH MY DOCTOR TO UP THE DOES, OVERALL IT HAS BEEN A GODSEND.
