What will happen if i stop taking estrogen?

If you stop HRT abruptly, your hormone levels will drop from high to low in a short time. As a result, your body can enter “nocturnal menopause” and rapidly reappear bothersome symptoms, such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances and mood changes, that alter your daily life. Therefore, if you are thinking about stopping hormone therapy, always consult your healthcare provider. If you gradually lower your HRT under the supervision of your GP, you will give your body more time to adapt and minimize the intensity of the symptoms of rebound.

If you stop HRT suddenly, you may experience increased anxiety, depression, and mood changes. Women who discontinue bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) are also likely to experience a return of menopausal symptoms. Stopping thyroid hormone replacement therapy and other critical replacement protocols carries additional risks.
