I'm 50 and around a year ago I started getting awful hot flushes, severe mood swings, insomnia, and more than the usual amount of hair loss. My Dr checked my fsh and said my menopause had started. She put me on Elleste 1mg. This has helped quite a bit with the hot flushes, but I still have mood swings, insomnia and a lot of hair loss.
I asked for a blood test to check my hormone levels. The Dr said my estrogen was totally normal and 8. She didn't mention anything abnormal, and offered me antidepressants. I don't feel right, and I'm sure this is a hormone inbalance. Looking at estrogen charts, 8 seems extremely low? The lack of sleep, hair loss and mood swings are making me miserable
