I'm 45, and I had a total hysterectomy almost 2 years ago that put me into a surgical menopause. It really hasn't been bad..occassional hot flashes is all I really get. I cannot do any form of hormone therapy, natural or otherwise due to having had breast cancer 11 years ago. To combat the usual post-menopausal vaginal dryness,(can I say that here?) :shrug: , I've been using a 400 mg vitamine E capsule inserted vaginally once weekly. (My GYN suggested that.) It works fairly well, but I was curious as to the possibility of other natural, hormone-free methods of dealing with it. Anyone have any experience or suggestions to offer? Thanks!
