Your symptoms suggest you are facing the side effects of the hormone medication. You should definitely take the help of your consultant and see if any other additional supplements are needed or if you can change the medication. Usually, adjustments take 2-3 months after initiation of hormone treatment and once settled, are usually on track for whatever time used. You may need coagulation and blood profile, hepatic function tests, hormone assays and a sonogram to help you further. Hope this helps.
