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.

I carry a small fan with a spray bottle attached that I found for $4. It was cheap and it works marvelously for hot flashes! I've tried natural supplements like Menopause Formula from Natrol and Availyn made by vitamin boat. The Availyn is a little more costly, but worth the extra money. I find that night sweats don't occur as often and I've had sex with my husband more frequently.
