I am pretty sure i'm in the throes of it. A little background. As far as I can tell my grandmother went thru it in her mid 40's. Not sure about my mother as she has always been in it judging by moods. I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago come January..not by choice but. I nursed ds for 16 months and shortly after that the symptoms started. Mood swings, panic attacks, hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, not sleeping. I've taken estroven for awhile and it has helped alot. But lately it just doesn't seem to be doing the same. The panic attacks are not as bad and neither are the hot flashes. I actually get cold now. But the fuzzy memory is worse, feminine dryness is worse, and I have absolutely no interest in sex (much to dh's dismay). So I'm researching what to try now. I've been looking at this site http://www.holisticonline.com/remedies/hrt/hrt_herbs_for_menopause.htm and reading what they say. I'd like to know what ya'll do or have done or know that works to help this.
