    You can take vit B6 and B12 or you can take a multivit for menopause they have them and magnisium is suppose to be good but talk to your doctor before taking them. 

    My opinion is stay away from HRT because putting more hormones into your body can cause more symptoms

    Blimey Cathy, you've asked THE big question here!

    Some ladies who have gone the hole 'natural/no HRT' route can give fantastic advice on here.

    Me: like you I'm using serenity progesterone cream - now are you finding that?

    I'm also a total convert to Menopace Original. What has it done for me?

    Made aching joint pain 100% better. That's been great.

    Overall mood improved. Don't feel weepy and feel much more 'in control'

    Don't get out flushes - whether thats anything to do with what I'm taking or not, not sure, but I'm bloody grateful!!

    Still can get up during the night up to 4 times for a week, so not sure if I technically class that as 'insomnia'. But I'd slept without getting up for 6hrs the other night. I knew that by remembering my last trip to the loo ha, h:-) !! I'd love a few more of them please.

    Having said that I very rarely feel tired during the day, feel quite energetic. Only exception to this is I can feel knackered/fatigued as I start to come on: to be expected I suppose.

    Trying a top-up of Magnesium: not sure as yet. Don't want to over-do the 'vits'-thing. I'd be very happy to stick with the Menopace cos I've felt so much better since taking it.

    Maybe give that a try?

    Good Luck

    Sx

      Thank you for your response, yes so difficult to know what to take, I'm trying a few at the moment, and yes have read about serenity, need to give this a go, I know it could take time, it seems menopace. Is very popular! What a strange time of life, try anything to feel more myself. thanks again for the advice xx
