I finished with menopause 6 yrs ago. I got through it on wild yam cream and walmart brand of estroven. I just recently stopped taking anything. Do I still need estrogen substitutes?

The only symptoms I have had are hair loss and dry vagina. Started up with source naturals natural progesterone cream 2xday and puritan's pride menopause support. Seems to help.

How interesting. So you had stopped, and have recently started again? How long of a break had you taken? And how long ago did you start with the progesterone cream and menopause support? I know many readers will be very interested, including me!

This is an interesting question, and an area of much debate. You will see many different opinions on all sides of the spectrum, but when we think about menopause and post-menopause, it is important to know that this is a natural part of life, and does not necessarily require "treatment".

Are you currently experiencing any symptoms, or are you worried about any of the health risks associated with low estrogen levels?

You may be interested in reading what other menopausal and post-menopausal women are talking about, as well as experts and recent studies:

-Menopause with no hormone treatment

-Is hormone replacement therapy really necessary?
-Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

I would love to hear what you think about the above resources, and hear more about your specific concerns about using HRT or not using HRT.
