When I was in my 40’s, before taking hormones, I felt out of control like an angry male truck driver (lost my soft sense of femininity, that internal sacred, the menstrual cycle connection to the moon cycle), stopped sleeping because I had the hot-oven-within-my-chest hot flashes every 10 minutes even when the windows were open in 20 degree weather, my thoughts were jagged … not in a straight line, but fragmented, raging, memory sparse, all with a sense of mental, emotional, and physical overwhelm.Ladies, do you know what I mean?
Men, have you experienced your wives and friends suffering with this?
After having drenched my clothes, hair, and inside of my shoes like I just stepped out of a pool clothed, and after having been in some important meetings at work where executives apologized for embarrassing me because in a hot flash I’d turn red as a lobster and for a minute could not recall what I was last focusing on or discussing — after that, I tried herbs and supplements which helped for 6 months. But when it all reoccurred and the herbs no longer helped, I started traditional hormones. I do not recommend this because it has a profound effect on your vitality and sexuality. It can totally diminish any intimate feeling in your body and drive. Fortunately for me, this all returned to me after I got off of them awhile, but for 20% of women – their vitality in intimacy never returns and physical feeling never returns. Gynecologists don’t tell you this, they just hand you a prescription.
While I know Bio-identical Hormones are not for everyone and that 20% of women are not helped by Progesterone Cream (for mood lifting and sound sleep), am very grateful this helped me to find balance.
What have you done to find balance?
