I am from South Africa and my name is Ellrina.
I had a hysterectomy in sept 2006. I have had all the problems that go with it. Worse was the hot flashes and night sweat for 3 to 4 hrs at night. I was on Premarin. I gained 12kg weight about 22 lbs in one month. I slept 2 - 3 hrs a night. Moody. etc.
I spoke to others on it they had no problems or thought mine was normal. After a year I went to doctor for blood tests. He reckoned my dose was to high. After a few different tablets i found Ortho -Est. That helped me. I could sleep again. the night sweat was minimal now. Moods better. Hot flashes less. But then came the summer. At least I sleep for 5 - 6 hrs and get up every 45 min. to go the the loo.
Then my brother got cancer and my sleep was gone. Too much stress. Now I suffer along with all. My brother passed away at age 32. I still take a depression tablet with the HRT.
Then I started to search the web for alternatives. and Guess What? I found it.
But too expensive with the international shipping and import duties. They do not have it in South Africa.
I will tell about it on the general team, and all of you can look it up, and buy it.
