see my post #6

I'm not a doctor by any means. I just do a lot of reading working in a health food store. There are more MD's using bioidentical hormones but DOs are really at the forefront of the movement. My mother was taking HRT and stopped. Now she just takes herbs but for the ladies with extreme cases I think asking one's doctor about it is good.

Thanks. My problems are minimal, probably because I've eaten a lot of soy based food for 10 years, but was wondering....I too STUDY health "foods and herbs."

There was a Dr on a thread just a few days ago, talking about needing always to take women's ovaries during a hysterectomy so that cancer isn't a concern. He was so blithe with his comment about just replacing the hormones with HRT. I was furious!

I just turned 35 but have been having problems for awhile. Last year I found out that my testosterone is quite low, as is my estrogen. I smoke so Dr's will do nothing for me (one Dr recommended birth control pills).

I would like more information, but even a women's center Dr was totally unsympathetic. I don't have a clue what to do at this point.
