We got together with an NP that deals strictly with menopause and she had labs done to see where here hormones were at. Our thinking is that you treat only the hormones that are low and not use a one pill treats all. After she had labs done she prescribed a cream that has Estrogen(s), Progesterone and Testosterone in the levels needed to get her back to a pre menopause levels. Wow! All the mood issues, lack of energy, Hot Flashes, Sex drive problems went away (Some took longer then others)

Our NP also made a variety of suggestions on diet, working out and got her taking a few OTC things like Vitamin D to improve overall health.

We are very happy with the results. BTW we only use human identical (Often called Bioidentical) hormones. And I think the cream (transdermal) way of getting them into her is best. The creams bypass going through the liver. And in addition the cost is pretty low! An unusual combo. :D
