These plant-based bio identical pellets were recommended to me. They are implanted under your skin. I've heard two success stories. Has anybody experienced these? https://www.biotemedical.com/

 

Thank you,

Amy

It may not be menopause.

10+ doctors told me my "hot flashes" were from menopause. Menopause was five years ago, "hot flashes" started two years ago.

It might not be menopause. Doctors assume that a woman with hot flashes/sweating is having menopause symptoms. I insisted that it was not, and finally found a doctor who agreed with me. See a specialist - endrocrinology or hematology. It could be many other things that are hormone related, but not caused by menopause (i.e. adrenal glands, pituitary glands)

I had the same problems with stress and hot food - 24 hours a day. I suggest seeing an endocrinologist for further testing. It may not be menopause related. Mine was not (despite what 10+ doctors said, and I disputed)

I'll bet she is right about the soy. It didn't work for me, but I haven't had it in my diet all my life. My Mom had absolutely NO menopause issues....no hot flashes, no mood issues, nothing! She had one long period about a month and a half, and that was it, done! Must be nice, huh? Obviously how your Mom went thru it has no similarity to what you may experience! LOL sheesh. lol

I tried the yam cream to no avail. I have not tried the vitamin E though, so thanks for that! Smiley Happy

I take 1000mg of vitamin E(natural) and  put wild yam cream on soft area of body. I put on my stomach. I did this every morning for a year. It really worked for me. I didn’t have hot flashes for 10 years .  They started back last year and I started back taking the vitamin E and using the wild yam cream, it works for me, no hot flashes or night  Sweat

I suffered terribly 35-62. Finally it just tapered off. Now, only occasionally with hot fluids or food. I was on HRT for 5 years. Md advocated no longer than that. It helped. All the philopina women I worked with said they never had problems with hot flashes. They attribute that to all the soy in their diets.
