Hi! Are there any older POTS women on board who have been given a hormone replacement therapy patch to stop hot flashes and did they think that helped or hurt their POTS symptoms. I've just been given a patch 3 weeks ago to help me sleep better and I've seen a lot of posts where people feel their symptoms are better when their periods are stopped. The patch is starting periods again so I'm wondering If I'm better with or without HRT. Any ideas?

Hi

I qualify as an "older"POTS woman..I recently re started HRT but on pills rather than a patch. I take half the usual dose each day and have really appreciated feeling cooler and no more hot flushes! No way would I ever go back to having periods ! I dont believe it has helped my POTS symptoms but as my Doc says anything that can make me more comfortable is worth a try! Maybe you could ask your Doc for a different type of HRT?

I'm not in the mature age group yet. Yet my body is barely making any estrogen so I do get hot flushes and practically never see a period.

Have you tried natural remedies as I would be worried about the side effects of HRT? There's natural estrogen and progesterone creams, or herbal remedies such as black coshosh, red clover and agnus castus.
