I might also try talking to another doctor. I don't have lupus but I have read a lot about it. I no longer trust my ob/gyn to actually much of anything about hormones and how they affect the whole body, the whole person. I see a naturopathic medical doctor who treats just like a regular medical doctor except he is also a hormonal specialist and sees the whole person--he knows more than any internist, gyn, or endocrinologist I have ever been to. Hot flashes have always destroyed my life but we have worked with compounded hormones and I think I am finally getting some relief. I would get a second opinion.

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...
