Patient Comments: Menopause - Treatments

What treatment has been effective for your menopause symptoms?

Comment from: Jane, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: July 18

Surprisingly exercise stops my hot and cold flushes and they don't recur during the rest of the day. I have always done a lot of sport; mainly now cycling, badminton, and mountain walking, and I thought that this would aggravate hot flushes but it was exactly the opposite. On the first bike ride (about 3 hours) the hot flushes stopped in the first 30 minutes and I didn't have any more for the rest of the day or evening. The same thing when I went mountain walking, we climbed 1000 m with no hot flushes. I've not seen anything written about this but it's an easy, enjoyable, and healthy way to quickly feel much better.

I am 52 and had a hysterectomy at 34. Two years ago night sweat and moodiness began. I started to take lowest dose of Premarin. It worked, but not great, and was very expensive. I just started estradiol today. I hope this works, I need some sleep.

I had a hysterectomy in my 40s. A few years later I thought I had mild hot flashes for a short while. I am now 64 and really having hot flashes! I hate the depression and the weight gain. Oh, and I have absolutely no desire for sex, some kissing and hugging and I am satisfied!

My wife is 54 and had a stroke about four years ago. She has gone through menopause. Now she has no desire to be with me. I'm wondering what we can do.

I am 35 and recently found out that I am perimenopausal. I have no children of my own. I have already experienced my first hot flash. The weight gain is the worst, not to mention the insomnia. I have no sex drive. Thank god I have no boyfriend. My skin is dry. I'm wondering how long this stage lasts and if there are any more surprise symptoms that I could encounter.

I go to the doctor for bio identical hormone therapy. However, it is administered as shots into the hip. It is not a trans dermal as the report states above(like a cream).

I am 46 years old. For two months my menstrual period is paused and I feel very tired and get irritated very earlier if doing any hard work. The whole day I have sweats and hot flashes. At night I have a tendency of urinal pressure. It's really a big sort of change in my life and in every women.
