Looking for help with early Menopause, can't take HRT

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all

Glad I found this forum.  I'm 40 and recently had my ovaries removed - i've feeling a bit flat over the last while and I'm wondering if this is to do with being plunged into menopause.

I can't take HRT due to having had estrogen receptive breast cancer so I'm looking for natural or herbal suppliments which are safe to take having had this illness.  I'm having some hot flushed but they aren't too bad, it's more the low mood that I'd like help with.

Thanks in advance for any advice offered

    Hello sue. There are lots of threads in this forum if you look back. I take HRT but gradually weaning myself off it so that's where I'll be looking after Christmas! However everyone is so supportive you'll soon get some amazing advice. You've come to the right place  😀

    Hi Sue,

    Feeling very sad to know this. It seems that you are likely to have early menopausal symptoms. As HRT is contraindicated in your case, the option remain is to improve your mode of living. You could increase oestrogen rich food such as soybeans, linseed, sesame seed, apricot etc. in your diet. Have regular exercises including mind relaxation techniques such as YOGA, Meditation. This is right place where you can share your thoughts, your emotions. Don’t get clogged with unnecessary ideas. Accept this phase and enjoy the life.
