I'll try to keep this short.
I'm 43 and have been hit by the menopause, my doctor prescribed HRT and I did start taking it but with scares of blood clots, and increased risk of cancers I stopped taking it. This was a year ago, and since then I have not had a decent night sleep, and I'm not sure how much longer I can go on like this.
I tried menopace which initially worked at first but then it stopped. I was going to try Black Cohosh, but read that it can effect the liver. I'm currently trying to introduce Soy into my diet, as this is meant to help.
But I feel like I'm clutching at straws and feel that all the information on the internet is confusing me.
My main problem is the sweats, especially at night. I have no problem dropping off to sleep, ten minutes and I'm out like a light, but then an hour later I'm awake, and I'm waking up every couple of hours. I feel totally drained.
Any help or advice would be really appreciated.
Thanks for reading ladies and I hope you all have a lovely Sunday.
