Thank you for your input, Rosa. She has had problems in the past w/hormone imbalance - once when she was about 13 yrs old, and once after the birth of her 3rd child. She is now 53 and has experienced a lot of stress the last 6 months - and I think that -along w/menopause has caused her imbalance. One of her worst problems now is severe insomnia. She started using melatonin (.05 MG) - but I fear that could mess up her hormones even worse.
Woke up nauseous and w/hives this morning - from the melatonin????
She is going to see how she feels at the end of 3 full weeks on estrogen - then has a follow up w/her GYN. One day at a time I guess.
