I have just read this is an article:  Guess what???? I have them all.  Menopause is defined as the end of a woman's monthly flow of menstrual blood and is the result of a natural decline in ovarian function. Signs and symptoms of menopause may affect a woman's psychology, sense of well-being, nervous system, heart, brain, muscles and gastrointestinal system. Some women experience one or more symptoms and some women experience no symptoms. Common complaints involve hot flashes, perspiration, irritability, dizziness, numbness, fatigue, nervousness, heart palpitations, vaginal dryness, nausea, gas, bloating, urinary incontinence, constipation, diarrhea, muscle pain, depression and insomnia.

      I didn't want to take HRT but I was battling with symptoms. I came across a supplemnt women were raving about but it was expensive and I knew I'd have to keep buying it, would've cost a fortune!

      So I looked at it's ingredents and the main one was Wild Yam. I buy it in tincture form from my herbal supplier; they might sell it in health food shops. It really eased menopause. I'm nearly over it now but I still keep it by my bed for the occassional hot flush when I get sudden stress.

      It was several years ago that I researched it so I don't remember all of it's properties but you could do that. I just know I wouldn't have wanted to go through it without it. 

      You have to take it regularly, at least 3 times per day. 

      Hope this helps! razz
