Early menopause...really need help & advice!

Hi friends,
I am 43 & learned recently that I am in menopause. I suspected I was but my Dr. put me on the patch, hormone replacement therapy & made me really sick! I also have twin toddlers to take care of who are turning 4 next week, so I have to get through this somehow. I am so frustrated, seems like all doctors want to do for everything these days is drugs! I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on some natural solutions they may have tried or heard of. Also, does anyone know how long menopause lasts?

Thanks in advance!

  • www.purelybalanced.com is my website all about hormone imbalance. There is a link page and a recommended reading page you need to check out. Also click on the women for balance link and read the articles there too... that is my sister site with a TON more on menopause etc. You really want to stay away from hormone replacement as it is unsafe and as you already experienced, has not so fun side effects.
