We're a group devoted to the education and support of something that will happen naturally to all of us at some stage: menopause. No longer called things like "the change" in quiet female-only groups; menopause is a normal stage of life that signals one part of life leaving, and a potentially fantastic one marching in! Some of us will need help, support and advice during this time, and some of us have lots of it to give. Light-hearted or troubled, we can swap experiences and stories, post questions and worries - all within a compassionate community that offers professional resources. Any woman, from 18 to 80, can benefit from membership! Let the fun and friendships begin...

Do you take all of the medicine and vitamins the doctor tells you to?

I am on bio identical hormones, and have to take progesterone by pill and testosterone
By cream. I forget the cream all the time,but I am always low when I have my. Tests done. I tried an implant last year of testosterone, but My skin broke out so bad for 6months. I spent a fortune in facials and products trying to fix my face. I decided to try the cream and I don't have the great feeling I did from the implant. Like great sex, great energy and strength. Has anyone tried anything that works well, or combination of products?

If I had listened to my doctor I would be a wreck! When I started bleeding heavy he didn't get into any symptomology and told me I should probably just get back on the pill.... I might have some endometriosis.

Turns out that 4 months later I had my last ever period. I was about to start going into menopause and the doc didn't even consider that fact. He thought I was too young to be going into menopause. I was 42. More and more women are going into it sooner because our environment is riddled with estrogens.

I hauled myself down to a local compounding pharmacy where I did a saliva test. We backward engineered getting a prescription from the pharmacists recommendation. I take a topical bioidentical progesterone and testosterone. I also take an adrenal supplement for hot flashes.

I feel like I got my life back after dealing with the symptoms for 8 months.

You may want to consider what cosmetic applications you are using too. That industry is NOT regulated at all.
