It sounds like you are now menopausal. HRT is the best treatment for that, unless there is some reason why you cannot use it.

Best wishes

lady PTA - VENLOR??? Very strange!

IMO you need to consult a proper gynae. Have pap/vault smears just to be on the safe side and blood tests to measure your hormone levels. At 53 menopause is possibly in full swing and hot flushes, moods and dryness in vagina are all expected. Night sweats could be menopause or caused by the Venlor.

According to results of blood tests you may need hormone replacement treatment. The gynae can advise you on this. For vaginal dryness use KY lubricant.

For your weight problems: eat properly and exercise but dont do anything that will harm your back.
