Re: Menopause

I am also post-menopausal and I use a progesterone cream that is bioidentical compounded by my pharmacy. You can also buy it over the counter, it is just weaker but I have used that kind too. It helps with hot flashes and relaxation so I can sleep alittle better. Do not use the prescription drug Premarin because I believe it is not safe. However, estrogen is the only thing that will help vaginal dryness associated with menopause and low sex drive but I cannot use estrogen cream because it gives me migraines. I have discovered soy. It converts to estrogen in the body and seems to help in that area somewhat, so I drink vanilla or chocolate soy milk or eat soy nuts. Hope this helps abit.
