HRT questions you forgot to ask your GP Tuesday 16 May 2017 PDF Print For immediate release: 16 May 2017 HRT questions you forgot to ask your GP Do you ever come home from your GP appointment realising you forgot to ask some crucial questions? Or were there some questions you were too embarrassed to ask? In the Spring 2017 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, pharmacist consultant Dr Nuttan Tanna gives answers to some key questions you may not have asked your GP. How soon will HRT work? Can you get pregnant while using it? Will it make you look younger? And what should you do if you forget a dose? “Many women write down a list of questions before a medical appointment, but may still not ask all of them, due to a lack of time or embarrassment,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “If you have any questions about your medicines, you can always ask your local pharmacist or get in touch with your GP.” The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women and healthcare professionals. The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter contains articles written by top medical experts, such as gynaecologists, GPs, consultants, specialist menopause nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, complementary practitioners etc. Other articles in the Spring 2017 newsletter include cystitis and thrush at the menopause, looking after your oral health and top health and lifestyle tips from The Menopause Exchange members, as well as recent news, book reviews and Ask the Experts Q&As.
