I have had the same pattern for 6 months now so I believe that I am officially in peri menopause. Is this how it started with many of you ladies as well? I am 48 years old. So far mine started with hot flashes and not being able to sleep. My periods are also coming sooner, I used to be every 28-30 day and now I'm down to 24 days. I still have it for 4 days but it is much lighter than before, I could wear two pads the whole time if I wanted to (I don't o... Continue Reading

Google Margie King....I think she has some articles on Green Med. I had horrible night sweats and took Andrew Lessman's Women's Wellness and it was fabulous.....nip it .....then I took evening primrose oil.. I do take maca and it helps me now but I am post menopausal. Honestly, I am in medicine but most mainstream physicians don't know a lot about supplements.....or wholistic treatments.......they just want to write a script. Thank you bell... Continue Reading

Just started noticing them about a month ago, right now I get about 2-3 a day and I go into a full on sweat, SOAKED - it's awful, my last one was today in a meeting, I HAD to excuse myself, could not sit there with my shirt soaked any longer, bra wet, they are crazy. What has helped you with these? anything? Please tell me there is hope? This is what has worked for me: 1. NO PRESERVATIVES. I know it sounds crazy but I was flashing constantly and I thought I was eating healthy. I would eat lean cuis... Continue Reading

Shelbelle, you are wise to do more research! My MD told me to avoid maca for a whole host of reasons. In sum, ... Continue Reading

A Gal at work told me to try MACA - There is a product called Femmenesence or something like that she said they have one for Peri - which is Maca Life then MacaPause for those in Menopause.

Maca helps promote sexual functioning, ensures vaginal lubrication and, in general, b... Continue Reading

Wear layers so you can peel them off when you "get that feeling"--you'll shortly become aware of a flash about to come on. It tends not to be so bad if you can get yourself a little cooler before the flash gets into full-on mode. It's worse when the weather is hot and humid, although at times I've been known to stand outside for several minutes in a snowstorm clad only in my nightgown. Personally, I've not...
