      Hi Ann You could try the sage tablets, these are specifically for hot flushes but are not known to contain any oestrogen like HRT.

    Hello. I'm 48 and pretty sure l'm perimenopause. Experiencing irregular heavy periods and hot flushes. With this can you also suffer from pains around the groin area and embarrasing occurances of flatulance or is this non related.

      Hi Ann Groin pain can be caused by a number of factors such as weakening of the pelvic floor muscles but it is best to get this checked out by your doctor first. Falling oestrogen can often affect the digestion resulting in wind or cramping or constipation. You may find cutting carbohydrate foods down (these are the worst culprits!) and drinking lots of water can help. Some women find taking a course of probiotics can improve things, you can get these from healthfood shops.

    I have been prescribed Vagifem and been using this for 2 month! But not really noticing any difference especially with the vaginal dryness! What is there that I can use for this as it's quite sore when my husband and I have intercourse and it's putting me off!! I don't like taking HRT treatments!! And would like to stop doing this but my doctor said I can't come off the Vagifem instantly! Why? What else can I take to overcome mainly vaginal dryness and hot flushes?

      Hi Maxine You could try Sea Buckthorn Oil capsules, these are known to help with vaginal dryness see for more info. You could also try our Menopause Support, this is traditionally used to help gently raise and balance oestrogen. You can also get natural lubricants from your health shop such as Sylk or Yes.
