Hello Jenny. Our stories are very similar but I did not start HRT until age 63 so it is never too late to start. We had a discussion here several days ago about our wife’s reaction when they finally learn we have been on HRT. It seldom works out well but sometimes we just have to do it. I will PM you sometime today and we can compare notes :).
Anyway, you are welcome here and it I look forward to hearing your story.
