You should try Black Cohosh, a herbal remedy that is very much used successfully in Germany,more than estrogen. I have used it for the past 4 weeks and have found relief. I take 3 40 mg tablets 3 times a day. It is recommended up to 250 mg. I also take red clover herbal supplement. You should also up your Vitamin E to 400 mig twice a day for a total of 800. Go to your library and check the books on menopause which talk about the natural way to go through menopause. There are many suggestions. I found these to be the most helpful. You should also take a multivitamin daily. Do try to read up about menopause, reading is better than talking to male doctors! I have found no side effects from these suppements but read about everything before you take them.
