Hi! I stumbled on your post while surfing around and am asking the same question. How do I know if I am in perimenopause or not? http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif
I am 47 years old and had a partial hysterectomy in March 2001 and kept my overies. They are still functioning and every month I experience ovulation, breast tenderness, irritability and the symptoms of a period without the actual period. I started using the progesterone cream in February 2002 and this month, I really notice a difference. I didn't have breast tenderness or soreness http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif
and I seem to be not so anxious and snappy. What a relief http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif
Everyone says that it takes about 3 months to get noticeable results.
I have also been taking a female supplement, flax seed, and added soy to my daily diet. The combination seems to have made a difference for me!!!!
