Eleven years ago I had a hysterotomy and went into the early stage of pre-menopause, because I wasn't very knowledgeable about this type of surgery and didn't know how to do the research on it, my experience with it was so overwhelming because my body went through a drastic change that I couldn't explain why, at the time of coming home I was told how to take care of my incision and what and what not to do in my healing process. How to deal with mood swing and relationship was not on the paper of instructions given. Hot flashes was not the paper either, I learn the technique of breathing to soothe the flashes,I was given patches to apply to my skin and was told they were hormone treatments, I had no knowledge of why the hormone treatment was important for me after the surgery. So going into this process blind and not having the sugery explain fully made me confuse,I was told that the benefit of the surgery was not having anymore pain and that I would not have anymore periods. The reason for my surgery was because of fibroid tumors and a cyst on my ovary. Today technology for this kind of information is good now, and I wish many days that I had It, because with the menopause, I also suffer from alopecia(baldness), that's what the patches was for, but they gave me really bad headaches (blinding headaches),the doses were lowered but the headaches was still bad. Today I care about my beauty and no matter what fault or floss is there I bring out the beauty, I'm a great grandmother but I'm a sexygrandma. So to all that have the means to make the right choice when it comes to your health and you have a way to do it, be thankful. That is why I'm praising these sites because for me they are benificial and needed. I now know more about menopause after my surgery than I did before I had it. you're never to young to learn or old, trust me I know.

    • You are absolutely right.

      Women need to know abut hormone therapy and stay up to date on the latest trends.

    • I also wore the patch and I rolled over in bed one morning, and somehow, the patch was stuck to my husband’s butt! I carefully pulled it off and prayed he wouldn’t be able to sing soprano in a choir after that!

    • Thanks for the comment Stephanie, the old saying Stephanie is that what don’t kill you only makes you strong. I’ve had days where I wanted to give up, before I found this site I was in one of those give up mood. After work today I couldn’t wait to come in log on. I now have one more thing to look forward to and that feels good.

    • I would like to suggest this wonderful Yam Cream I am using for my hot flashes, it has really worked for me! meltdown Wild Yam Cream...you could just type that in a search and come up with it...I don’t remember the name of the website(old age?)lol! It has also increased my desire for sex which was a great side effect for my husband and I!
      God Bless..

    • Soy is also very good for hot flashes.  Early menopause runs in my family and the hot flashes were unbearable.  I was tearing clothes off in the middle of snow driven winters.  I started drinking a large glass of soy milk with my vitamins every morning and the hot flashes were gone after about a week.  I can tell when I have skipped a day or two of my soy milk because the hot flashes start to come back.  We all have to go thru this at one time or another. Having a site where we can commiserate and help each other through it helps a great deal.  I am actually feeling better because I don’t feel so alone about it.  Hope my suggestion helps. Peace

    • I too started early menopause at 40 and of course I have alopecia, so I have to speak of hot flashes and wigs...when a hot flash comes in all I want to do is snatch the wig off, and I have in the restroom at work a few times!! estatic
      So I love my bald head in the spring and summer!  

      All I keep telling myself when the flash come is...It’s going to pass think cool thoughts... happy

      Thanks for the remedies ladies, we all have to keep sharing!
