About a week and a half ago I had the good fortune to run into several lady drs who were in town for a womens health conference on OB/GYN problems. I struck up a conversation with them and they actually talked to me. I explained to them about some of my problems that I am still having problems with and they all agreed that it sounded like hormone problems, mainly perimenopausal.

I researched perimenopausal symptoms and I was surprised at what I learned. I suggest that some of you who are having hormone related problems that haven't resolved might need to look into this. Since my dr has refused to test my hormone levels because he thinks i'm just "getting older",. I'd like to smack him up side the head.

Anyway, they suggested herbals, from Wild Yam cream which is supposed to help with progesterone levels, Vitex, Evening Primrose Oil, Macca root and Ashwagandha.

I am pleasantly surprised because in the last couple of days my anxiety that had gone away when I went gluten free, which slowly has come back, is starting to ease up, the pain that I have always associated with endometriosis, has eased up some, and what I am really happy about is my fatigue is feeling like it's lifting. and my hot flashes has eased up a little.

I researched perimenopausal symptoms and I was surprised at what I learned. I suggest that some of you who are having hormone related problems that haven't resolved might need to look into this. Just a thought.

That really sucks that the doctor wouldn't test your hormone levels. I'm only 38 and my endocrinologist tested mine back in March. She and my gyn doc said they look good. I don't know how old you are but I don't think it was an unusual request.

Hi Roda, that's just it I turn 47 the 27th. Getting him to do anything is like pulling hen's teeth. Ughh, i've decided to change dr's and I have an appointment with an endo on the 17th next month, so we'll see what happens.

I use Transitions. It's one of the few things I've found without soy and I really feel a difference when I take it consistently.

What symptoms are/were you having? I am 51 and aside from changes in my period, I don't think I'm having any. That being said... I do take Evening Primrose Oil for my neuropathy and I started taking Black Cohosh several years ago when I had a very heavy, 18 day period. My Dr. at the time (I no longer see her) said it was likely just my age.
