Perimenopausal/Menopausal
Quote | Reply
Any women out there going through this "fun" stage in life and are taking some hormonal support to deal with symptoms? I do NOT want to do hormone replacement treatment by taking estrogen and progesterone, but really need some help with alleviating symptoms like night sweats and hot flashes. Have been looking online at options but there are SO MANY! Anyone have experience with Amberen or Menoclear for example? Thank you ladies!

I am going through the same thing--irregular cycles, I can't sleep, I have hot flashes. The gynecologist tried to put me on oral contraceptives, which I can NOT take. When I refused, they did blood work. It turns out that my sex hormones are fine, but my thyroid is out of whack. If they haven't tested that yet, you might want to ask.

I cannot take any hormones (heart issue). Last fall I began having awful night sweats and hot flashes all day long. I started taking black cohosh, and it worked great at relieving those symptoms.
