I am really struggling with menopause

Hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety, low moods. It’s awful.
My dr is fantastic and did a saliva test and started me on bioest cream and progesterone. Felt no better so has put me on a different hrt.
Another saliva test has shown my cortisol is low and my DHEA is high. I’m now on 10mgs of pregononol. Will this nightmare ever end. My dr is confident but I just want my life back.

Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

It's good you are seeing your doctor for help. Menopause symptoms can be different for each woman. We have many articles on our EmpowHER site that might be of help. Copy/paste the reference link.
