Natural HRT Supplements

Every women has an option, getting natural hormones from your diet and supplements, or Hormone Replacement Therapy ( HRT) by prescription.

It is important to find the treatment that works best for you, although it may change as your symptoms and needs alter.

    Hi

    I am 48 and perimenopausal. I don’t currently have hot flushes or night sweats however my irregular periods and breakthrough bleeding are getting me down. I had BTB for the whole of January and prior to that 7 months of no periods. I have gone back onto the pill in the hope of regulating my periods however now in the middle of my 2nd packet I am getting BTB again. Do you think supplements would boost my estrogen levels and help regulate things? Can you recommend any?
    Many thanks
    Jo

    I am 47 and perimenopausal. I am suffering with very erratic periods, either going long periods or having them close together and heavy. I am also suffering with hot flushes , bloatedness amongst other things. I have been trying to find something I can take to help as I can’t have HRT because I’ve had breast cancer. I also take medication for an underactive thyroid. Does anyone have any advice please?
