    Good morning.

    I am almost 60 and post-menopause for several years now.  About 2 1/2 years ago I started Organic hormone replacement via pellets.  Both Estrogen and Testosterone and taking progesterone at night.  Over these years I have developed sinus problems and a constant phlegm in my throat. It has been on and off for the past few years.  It causes me to cough so much to get it out of my throat that my upper chest muscles hurt.  It also zaps my energy.   Recently I began to do a process of elimination on what could be causing this.     I even got an allergy shot to see if this might get rid of the problem.  Nope!  My last course of action is to stop my HRT.  I did read, finally, on an HRT forum that estrogen, testosterone and progesterone can cause sinus build and cause on going sinus problems.  I started to take it to get more energy, libido and take away my mild hot flashes.  I was also post 3 months after having COVID.  Was advised that it would help with my COVID cough.  I am strongly moving towards discontinuing the therapy. Can you give me some advice?  Thank you.
