Your menopause book is just excellent - common sense, at last!! I'm 54,
last period over 2 years ago, and have been on the roller coaster of
emotional, spiritual and physical transformation for the past seven years.
Major things in my life tend to go in seven year chunks, so I wasn't
particularly surprised to find lately that it feels as though I've reached
I tried progesterone cream for a few months but the only
thing it seemed to do for me was to eradicate ongoing and long-standing
urinary tract infections, they stopped completely within days of using the
cream. … and I stopped using the cream a couple of months back.
And guess what - I have fewer hot flashes, sleep better, my weight has
stabilized (at about 7 kg more than it was, but it's stable now) and all
together I feel a whole lot better!
I'll be using your gentle and practical approach as the basis for looking after myself from now on in, and am taking my first tentative steps as a Crone, albeit a baby one!
