Doctors are less willing to prescribe HRT now because of the
possible side effects, and also HRT is supposed to be used to help alleviate
symptoms during the menopause which for the majority of women will be over
by the time they reach 59.
Menopause-like symptoms after this age may often be caused by other factors such as adrenal fatigue, low iron, low thyroid or low vitamin D so it may be an idea to ask your doctor to test for these if they haven't already done so.
