    I am a 51 year old woman with hypothyroidism. I have been using the menopause support tablets now for 3 months and have definately helped me. However i am having widespread joint and muscle pains and my joints are cracking and creaking alot. I have tried a number of products now but am not getting any relief from this at all. My muscle problems are quite bad in my head and shoulders and sometimes goes down my back. I would appreciate your thoughts. I have tried to stay away from hrt as i have had an adnormal breast biopsy which although i didn't have cancer and i was told i am at more risk of developing it in the future. Thank you

    Hi I will be having a hysterectomy soon and been told I can't have HRT. So I am looking at other alternatives to take. I am going through the side affects of hot flushes etc due to medication I was on called zoldaic. What would you suggest I can take?

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

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
