Hello everyone, can anyone advise on over the counter products that may help with hair thinning, night sweats, dryness etc that do not contain Iodine ?? I have an underactive thyroid so cannot take Menopace, just need something to help me until I can see my Consultant, am having so many sleepless nights and finding it all such a struggle, can anyone advise please. Am 11 months post Oophorectomy, hysterectomy 20 years ago, all was fine until last op, and surgical menopause is no fun.

      Lol. You describe them so well! Honestly in this day & age you'd think GP's in particular would have more up to date views. Some of them are still stuck in the 1950's and 60's. It's our body for goodness sake. They prescribe codeine and similar drugs like giving a child sweets but huff & puff when you ask for HRT!
