My Dr. told me to try to stop taking it every so often to see how I'm feeling. I have tried this twice and each time my hot flashes return with a vengeance!
I don't want to be on the hormones any longer than necessary to ease my transition. Will I just have to suffer whenever I stop? Or will it be easier at some point (unknown in the future)?
Thanks for any wisdom you can share.
Do you think you could tolerate them in any way, shape or form? Could you dress in layers to accommodate cool down when necessary? Do you need the hormones for any other reason like osteoporosis?
I've never taken anything for this. My hot flashes are pretty much done with, occasionally get heat bombs (all over, long lasting). The night sweats are done. The moods are evening out. I just dress in layers, sleep with a fan, make sure I have papers in my purse I can use as a fan if necessary.
I'm 52 and whenever I get too many hot flashes I do a gentle liver detox and the flashes disappear for months.
