Hi sis. I went through menopause early due to a hysterectomy. I refused to take synthetic hormones, man made, (one of the ingredients is Mare Urine). I am taking herbal estrogen by Life Extension. It is all herbal. No Hot flashes, moodiness, nothing, it is fantastic!!!
Before I went through menopause I would always say "I'm not taking anything, I'll go through it naturally". Boy, did I eat those words. The symptoms of menopause was worse on me than my period. Your hot, then cold, bladder problems, crying over the sillyist things, it was awfull. But with that herbal estrogen I'm back to my normal sweet self now. Whew!!
