I'm just wondering if any women out there might have some advice to offer me...
I've always had a high androgen level, and have entered early menopause. I went through a moment of feeling devastated by that, and feeling I'm no
longer a woman or something.... but I got over it.
Turns out it is really nice to not deal with periods, or mood swings, or acne. I have had no problems with weight gain, just the opposite actually,
and my husband finds me as desirable as ever, so...meh...not so bad!
Then the hot flashes started. I had no idea how horrible they are! Somedays it is happening like every twenty minutes! It is driving me insane,
especially since it happens all night, and I can't get a good nights sleep.
I suppose I could get some sort of hormonal treatment from my doctor, but I hesitate because I've never liked the idea of tinkering with hormones.
I was wondering if other women have any ideas for ways I can deal with this naturally? Through diet, or exercise or whatever?
I'd appreciate any input !
