I am so glad I found this forum. I have read the sticky's but please let me know if I'm not posting properly.
I just turned 50. I haven't had a period for 2 years or so. My main issue is vaginal dryness/irritation. I didn't think I was having hot flashes until I saw a post on another forum about after eating a meal feeling hot and nauseated and close to fainting. That is me to a tee! So, I guess I also have hot flashes.
My doc can't put me on any HRT because I smoke. My mom also died of breast cancer at 51. He suggested an herbal supplement. I did some investigating online and I am overwhelmed! Black cohosh, macafem, replens, astroglide, ginseng, the list goes on and on.
Can someone direct me in the right direction for my symptoms? I don't want to get ripped off by these websites, as their remedies are quite expensive. Has anyone tried any of these remedies or know of a reliable website I can visit? I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help.
