I live in South Africa, 45 years of age and went into menopause at the age of 31 after my third child. I've tried using progesterone cream once but it increased the pigmentation in my face and didn't make much of a difference otherwise. I stopped it and decided not to use any type of hormonal replacement. I lead a fairly healthy lifestyle with no smoking or drinking of alcohol. I eat healthy foods only and exercise regularly. I am very weight conscious and have managed to keep my weight steady. I do however find that I have little sex drive and experience vaginal dryness, I have the mood swings and lately been very depressed which is totally opposite to my nature as I consider myself to be an optimist. I just wish there was some way of reversing all these negative menopausal symptoms without any HRT, of which I am against. I believe in natural remedies.
