I had surgery back in November 2010 to remove my one remaining ovary. (I had a partial hyst when I was 22) Now I am in menopause and I take Enjuvia (hormones) I am taking double the maximum dose per my doctor because the max dose was not working so he told me to double it. I am really concerned about this because of the breast cancer risk. Are there any natural ways that actually work to control the symptoms of menopause? I have run out of the Enjuvia before and if I don't take it I literally feel like I am dying, I have severe anxiety attacks and hot flashes so severe that I seriously wish I would die, dizziness, and headaches. It really is awful. Any advice is much appreciated, Ive tried talking to my doctor but he says I need to stay on the Enjuvia, I swear the makers of Enjuvia are paying him to prescribe it! Thank you in advance for any advice given. Answered by Laraine Zachter 6 months ago.
I've tried a few products that they sell at the Health Store. There supposed number one seller called Menosense, did absolutely nothing for me, nor did it help my friend. Menozac did nothing either. I've come to the conclusion that the natural products are a waste of money, and whatever they claim is in them has been so diluted, it's basically useless. So I am learning to live with the hot flashes. Just stick with your Dr. He /she knows best. Answered by Emerita Doorley 6 months ago.
Is there anything that I can use for menopause?
I've been on Enjuvia .625 for a couple of yrs now..my pharmacy says it is on back order. The Dr prescribed Premarin .625 which is not at all like Enjuvia..in the meantime is there something OTC that I can buy instead of using the Premarin? Please help because my GYN doesn't care at all. Thanks!

My doctor put me on Enjuvia(estrogen pills) to help regulate my cycle since I got the implanon. The implanon has caused me to have my period daily and he said that these would help. I asked him if there were any bad side effects he said no. I also asked about weight gain & would these harm me with my baby making in the future. He said no to both. I have read online that they do cause you to gain weight. Are there any other side effects? Should I just deal with bleeding everyday? I know that birth control helps with acne, will these? I am 22 years old btw. Answered by Lita Leydecker 6 months ago.
STOP THOSE PILLS ! & CALL YOUR DOCTOR NOW!!! They sound like they are you doing more harm then good. Call her doctor and ask him/her if you could go on a different type of estogen. Maybe even patches! Which are a lot better & easier to use. If you still have problems! Call your doctor immediately and tell him/her that you cannot take estrogen any more. Then asked them if there is anything that could help you; like certain kinds of food or etc. Alright? Angel Answered by Gerald Peter 6 months ago.

Crabby and tired get my vote. Is this doctor a gynecologist? I am asking because most women who take estrogen also take progesterone, since there are some risks associated with estrogen. I'm not a doctor, so you would have to consult one. I would try for a female gynecologist... Answered by Vickey Wackenhut 6 months ago.

Okay....yes.... I am a guy but my poor wife is suffering with terrible " Hot Flashes " going through the change. Unfortunately her mother & about 4 of her aunts had breast cancer. As a result although she had taken " enjuvia " for awhile her Doctor now refuses to prescribe it for her any longer . She does not want to change Doctors so I am looking for some over the counter herbs, etc. that could give her some relief ? I heard good stories about soy tablets or flaxseed oil tablets ? Has anybody had any success with them ? I am just a loving husband who is hoping that somebody could suggest some herb that really provides relief from " hot flashes " ? I am reluctant to get some of these " wonder cure " herbs most of which which, I understand, do nothing except make the manufacturer rich. Please help a guy who really wants to help his wife ? Thanks This was kind of awkward for me but I would love to help my wife find some relief Answered by Man Munsen 6 months ago.
Treating hot flashes with herbs of Dandelion Root caps, take two caps two times per day. Dandelion Root contains Inulin which helps the body to produce the hormones that contribute to the production in the liver and pituitary gland and thyroid. Sage is excellent for hot flashes and night sweats but it should be taken in cap form and taking it for long periods of time can be to harsh and cause less desirable side effects. Stick with the Dandelion Root and advise her to eat foods that contain sage and add sage to her foods and she can add sage to bath soaks too as a natural aid. You can view the site below to see if it's listed, if not, contact them about the Dandelion Root. They are local to me and that's where I purchase mine. This lady is excellent to work with and can give you alot more advice too. Answered by Nilda Ravenhorst 6 months ago.

Can I just stop taking prescription HRT cold turkey and go with natural over the counter? Answered by Felecia Lafemina 6 months ago.
To me irt sounds like side effects all of the way.. I had my hysterectomy last December (2006) and I was only on the HRT for about 6 months.. I have Endometriosis and I am trying to get out of pain. But I have had LESS symptoms with out it, than with it. Except for the insomnia, but my other meds make me have that too. I think if you can talk to you Dr about changeing to the over the counter, do it. If you cant talk to them, change- but keep some of your perscription ones on hand in case you go nuts... LOL ....

Went on HRT 2 months ago. My hot flashes went away but overall I feel tired & bloated and gaining weight.?
What happens if I just stop taking them?
Asked by Nyla Shoumaker 6 months ago.
You can expect the hot flashes to return. You should talk with your Dr. about trying different meds or adjusting your dose. I am 11 weeks post-hyst and have tried several different HRT's and have finally ended up on Enjuvia. Here is a wonderful site you should visit - www.hystersisters.com. There is an amazing amount of info on HRT on there as well as an article entitled "Too Much Estrogen, Too Little Estrogen". You can contact me privately if you need more info. I hope this is helpful and wish you the best in finding a HRT that will work for you. Good Luck! Answered by Deirdre Vilanova 6 months ago.
Ahhh, HRT! When you stop it you will be exactly where you were when you started it...nice eh? And the other stuff is from the HRT....AND I assume you are taking a conjugated estrogen say Premarin for example; that stands for: PREgnant MARes urINe They keep the mares pregnant , on as little water as possible to sustain life(to concentrate their urine) and kill the foals..Sorry that would not make me feel better. I keep posting this but go to powersurge.com there is a lot of helpful menopause stuff in there. Perimenopause info is what made me get on the net 10 years ago...still waiting for menoSTOP! Good luck. Answered by Debbra Orion 6 months ago.
I would go to the doctor and make sure you don't have anything underlying the weight gain and bloating. As i'm sure you are aware of the problems that HRT can induce, cancers, etc... Then ask them the best way to back off the medications so that you don't have a rebound effect. It is different for everyone, but you will rebound the other way if you just "stop" them.
