    At the moment, I have not spoken to my husband for days, I feel so unappreciated at home, we still have 3 teenagers at home and between them and their father I feel as if I'm going round in circles picking up after them and living in a tip, with not one ounce of help to do anything, it's actually making me feel quite resentful and so much a very emotional wreck!!!

      Hi Margaret This is such a common menopause scenario, you are not alone here! It can be a combination of low oestrogen affecting our mood but also low oestrogen loosening our ability to keep our emotions under control so we can feel angry, resentful or fed up with others really quickly. I have posted a couple of blogs on these situations which you may find explains why you feel like this and what you can do to help yourself. You may need to copy and post these links. https://www.avogel.co.uk/health/menopause/videos/why-do-i-feel-so-angry/ https://www.avogel.co.uk/health/menopause/videos/who-am-i-now/

      Hi Martha There are no contraindication listed with Menopause Support and thyroid medication. Although the Menopause Support contains soya this is fermented which is different to whole soya foods which should be avoided.

    Hi I am really struggling at the moment with menopause. Doctor advised I am peri menopausal, he suggested HRT but I have breast cancer history in my family so I did not want to go on this. My period has stopped but I still get the symptoms. I have dealt with pms for years but this is worse.At certain times of the month I get this feeling of hopelessness, it's like a black cloud hanging over me. I feel so depressed, so low. Everything is so difficult.I am so tired all the time, I feel exhausted even after sleeping. I can't remember the last time I slept well. I have other symptoms, sweats and really bad headaches all the time, struggle to concentrate. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Mary Sorry to hear that you are having a difficult time. Low oestrogen levels can cause low mood and make you feel very vulnerable. However, have you had low iron, low vit D and low thyroid tested recently by the GP? Especially as you are feeling exhausted. As these health issues can arise at the same time as the menopause and cause similar symptoms or contribute to the menopause symptoms. Let me know thank you.
