      Hello Gaynor, Sorry to hear that you are in a lot of pain. If the HRT cream is not working well, it is best to let the GP know. There are alternative remedies that might be worth considering, as mentioned on this page, such as, Uva Ursi Complex and Menopause support tablets. Alternatively, it could be an idea to see someone like a nutritional practitioner. They can offer you support through an individual treatment plan to help.

      Hi Michelle, Could you email me at I need to ask what age you are and why you were put on HRT and have you checked the side effects of the medication. Thank you

    Hi is this OK to take if you ha e had endometriosis? I can't take HRT as it could accelerate growth, will this be OK? I was told not to take any hormones mimicking supplements such as Black Cohosh etc. Hoping it will be OK! Your Sage tablets have helped me a lot in the past, thank you :)

      Hi Sarah Although there doesn't seem to be any indication that fermented soya can have any adverse effect we tend not to recommend it, sorry. What are your main symptoms and I might be able to suggest something that is OK.

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.
