I am going through hot flashes and night sweats right now.  It gets crazy, I go to bed cold, wake up and it's like I am on fire.  The pillow is soaked, I am soaked, it is just so darn uncomfortable. 

I am lucky though.   I have never had a problem with dryness.  My juices flow quite easily actually. 

Wish I could help.  I have a friend that got her hormone panel done and they made a concoction especially for her.  Bio chemical or something.  I think it was on the Oprah show, but I didn't see it.   She loves it, swears by it, says it isn't made out of horses urine, etc.   Wants me to go to her dr.   I may to see what it is all about.  She looks and feels wonderful, no hot flashes, no night sweats, and no dryness. 

Does anyone know what I am talking about, since I don't?
Yes Smiley
Bio-identical hormones.  I take bio-identical progesterone.  Bio-identicals are just that - identical to the hormones that your body is not producing enough of, so don't have the dangerous side effects of synthetic hormones.

YES! That's it.

Your regular doctor prescribes for you? And, do you know the source of the hormones?

Are those hormones costly every month Sang?
Do you have to be on them the rest of your days?

Just came across this and have not researched any further so - for what its worth ...


http://www.aralifestyle.com/article.aspx?UserFeedGuid=3a98f3a5-30b3-42fd-8069-4b6ead0721b7&ArticleId=1636&ComboId=450&title=New-Menopause-Remedy-Sparks-Excitement

New Menopause Remedy Sparks Excitement

(ARA) - It seems that not a month goes by without another study revealing some terrible side effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Topping the list of concerns is breast cancer, which has been definitively linked to HRT. Still, millions of women use HRT to mitigate menopause symptoms that include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain, decreased libido and more.

Why do so many women treat a non-life threatening condition (menopause) with a drug that can result in a potentially fatal illness?

"If your symptoms are bad you'll do most anything to ease them," says Carol Nicholson, a registered nurse who has been on HRT for several years. "I have a history of breast cancer in my family, so for me, HRT was the last resort. But I just felt helpless."

She says that seeing a large number of natural menopausal relief products in stores and on the Internet can be deceiving, because virtually all of them are based on the same herbal ingredients, like soy, black cohosh and red clover. Even though she settled for HRT, Kriegel continued searching for a viable, safer alternative.

Her wish suddenly came true when she read a news report about a product called Amberen, which was described as a natural compound that restores hormonal balance by stimulating organs of the neuro-endocrine system. Nicholson admits she was skeptical, but she decided to give it a try anyway. To her amazement, she was able to get off HRT in less than 3 weeks. "I'm now adding another holiday to my calendar. Oct. 19, the 'Menopause Liberation Day,' " she says.

Nicholson's story mirrors those of thousands of other women who had tried Amberen since its limited release on the market about a year ago, according to Lunada Biomedical, the company that manufactures Amberen. The company believes that Amberen will quickly gain significant market share in the United States based on its effectiveness, high quality of clinical data, and its unique mode of action.

"In our studies, we have successfully achieved an HRT-like effect by administering natural mitochondrial metabolites that essentially mimic the effects of hormones. We clearly demonstrated that a natural, non-hormonal compound based on balance of salts succinates, can, in effect, lead to temporary hormonal renaissance," says Dr. Eugene Maevsky, who led the Amberen study.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, 4-week Amberen treatment sharply increased estradiol concentrations in the blood of menopausal women. Estradiol is the most potent naturally occurring estrogen and is often referred to as the "hormone of youth" because of its critical role in reproductive and sexual functioning. Estradiol also was shown to improve the strength and elasticity of bones and joints while also improving the skin. Amberen can relieve symptoms such as headache, increased irritability, insomnia, and hot flashes.

You no longer have to settle for HRT or lackluster result with herbal remedies. Amberen offers a risk-free trial for 30 days. Just pay $7.99 for shipping and handling. Visit www.myamberen.com/menopause to sign up for this offer.

Really KA.  Because I think I noticed the opposite.  I wasn't having hardly any hot flashes before I met L.   Now that I have sex almost daily they have begun again.

I was thinking maybe that was the reason... stirring up all those hormones again... Grin

I guess I will keep having sex and hope they go away.... Wink

I have a theory I plan to investigate. I think the more sex you have the less hot flashes you have.

I actually slept through the night with only waking up twice with hot flashes,after our very rainy weekend with nothing much to do but play inside.  Wink


edited for spelling lol


Hmm - interesting because since I started having sex, I have had almost no hot flashes.  I assumed it was because of moving from the hot desert southwest to the cold (snow??) midwest. But, maybe you're right.  Either way, I'll take the sex.

I'm sorry that I didn't get back to this sooner.... 

First, check out a book called "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause" by John R Lee.  There is also one about PreMenopause with basically the same title. 

Or... go to his website http://www.johnleemd.com/   I think that's probably about the best launching point.

In the book, he describes the difference between natural and synthetic hormones.  He discusses in depth how hormone imbalance affects us, and how treating with synthetic hormones often causes more problems than it helps. 

One of his ideas, which is now being a little more backed in the mainstream, is that because of our diet and our environment, most women are estrogen dominant....  most petrochemicals have an estrogenic effect on the body.  That's his explanation for the decreasing age of the onset of puberty in girls, the increase in PCOS, etc.  It makes a lot of sense. 

All I know is I felt like I was dying - I went to an accupuncturist who gave me this book, and, it literally saved my life.

I'm reviving this thread - just to say hot flashes SUCK!!!  I did just redo my saliva hormone testing - waiting for the results to come back and get my bioidentical hormones reformulated.  I'm also feeling a little "tender" emotionally. 

DH says that the nights are a comic dance of me curling up against him mumbling "hold me" then 5-15 minutes later kicking the covers and flailing saying "get off me, I'm HOT!" then curling against him...then... Roll Eyes

This is exactly what I do all night long..

I Haven't done the bio chemical thing yet. I am just toughing it out.   I am really curious about how it works for you.  Please keep us updated!

Sang- just refreshing this thread ... are you still using the bioidentical hormones?  Is it like natural progesterone creams?  I'm reading up on alternative treatments for endo, I can't stand the pill much longer (I'm getting motion sickness when I'm driving, and I work in a town with the nearly most roundabouts in the country!) and one thing i've come across is the natural progesterone cream but it's hard to get in the UK, it's not licensed so unless my doc will prescribe I'll need to import it for my own use!

Yeah, I am.  All I'm using right now is the natural progesterone, and it makes a BIG difference. 

If you end up going it alone, I think the books by the late Dr. John Lee probably have the best information in terms of dosing.

I really don't know what all this about and haven't had the time to research it but I sware since the man has been gone my Hot Flashes have been minimal to say the least.

I'm not sure if it's his body heat ,pheromones or what but there is a connection I think.
I think it's all of the above.  I almost never have them during the day, and the night ones are better, but not gone.   I'll always have a good one after sex, and get really hot when I get turned on.  DH had been joking that if he got cold at night, all he had to do is rub me three times and it was like turning on a heater.   We went camping early last Sept - it was cold and rainy, we were sleeping in a tent.  I kept waking up in the mornings wet and horny - it was bizarre.  Until I *caught* him "turning the heater on"!

I think I would rather have him here and have the hot flashes at least when I stripped down and ran outside into the cold night air I had him cheering me on.  Cheesy

LOL!  That's a picture!

I think I already posted about sitting outside, starkers and wishing for a breeze.

What used to make me crazy was going from AC to the heat or to evap cooling. My house and car were both AC'd but the facility where I worked with wildlife was evp cooled. I'd start a hot flash when I walked in and it wouldn't end until I had been back in my car for a while. I would literallyl have humongous hot flashes that would last 5-6 hours and leave me exhausted.

I can't say why, after all those years, they finally stopped. But, good lovin' sex sure as hell doesn't hurt!
