Cindy - How am I feeling? Like I have new and miserable symptoms that need to be addressed for me to be healthy. When this came up for me, my family physician referred me to a endocrinologist. A gynecologist would probably have been alright too. So I do think my doc helped me deal with these new symptoms, even though they are, as your doc says, "natural, therefore, there's nothing to be done."
Cindy, I hope the gyno you've been referred to works with you - not just to do the bloodwork - but listening to your symptoms and helping you feel better. Yes, it is a natural process, but suffering terribly is not necessary!
