Well, so it is official, menopause!  Don’t get me wrong I am not sad to stop having periods.  I just wish this process was not so challenging.  I feel like a stranger in my body.  There is a family history of cancer so I can’t take anything but natural things.  If you have ideas or suggestions I would really love the help!

    • Anni63 I am only in the very beginning stages so I can’t really offer you many tips. However there is a group on here and there is topics there that may help.

    • Hi Anni63,

      There’s a capsuled herbal product sold at health food stores called, “Change.O. Life” that
      is the “Nature’s Way” brand, that you can try. I used it during my perimenopause stage and it helped the PMS I suddenly had. Hope this is helpful to you.  

      Cathie

      I’ve been in perimenopause for a few years now and have more or less toughed it out. Not fun. But I’m on the tail end of it so it’s much better now. I’ve used the information in this website with good results

      I buy their vitamins and have consulted with their staff. It’s a women’s health clinic in Maine with one of its founding members Dr. Christianne Northrup. They have a very comprehensive website.

      I hope your symptoms are not too bad. I know how you feel and great empathy for anyone of us in the middle of the change.

    • Hi Anni,

      I’m through it to the other side, and I’m here to tell you, it’s FABULOUS. I love being done with all that stuff. Even the hot flashes have passed. So hang in there - at some point you’ll get used to being in your body again and it will feel better than ever.

      The main thing, I guess is, as you said, keep getting your checkups since you have stuff in your family. But also I’ve found walking and yoga to be really great. Nutritional supplements are more important now than ever.

      Good luck, sweetie. You’ll be fine!!!!
