Has anyone tried this therapy? Any side effects? How often do you do it?

    No, I have not tried HRT implants and never would for several reasons:

    1. they are outlawed in the U.S. (where I live)

    2. they can cost a person her life

    3. they have horrendous side effects, some of which are fatal

    4. some implants are faulty and so they don't dissolve or release the medication as they are supposed to

    Side effects include:

    estrogen overdose

    blood clots

    heart attack

    stroke

    I suggest you do some very intensive research before you even consider this course of treatment.
