Hi f

Thanks for your post.

Livial is not necessarily more dangerous than other menopausal treatments but there are side effects to them and like any other medication, some are more dangerous than others. And some side effects are just simply really uncomfortable.

Have you talked to your doctor about trying natural treatments instead? Or have you thought about bio identical hormones?

Here is more information for you in our extensive Menopause section: http://www.empowher.com/condition/menopause

Let us know what you think!
