I had my last son when I was 43 years old and I haven't had a period since. I will be 60 years old in November. I've always been so active but over the last 12 months I've felt down and my body just feels like it's giving up. It's not like me at all. I can't take HRT as I've suffered from anxiety in the past. Is there anything that I can take as an alternative? I''ve lost all my sex drive too. I'm usually such an active person. Please can you advise me?
