  1. Hi Ellen, Just turned 62, still on my estrogen patch and prometrium. Doctor has ok’ed it, but wondered what your latest thoughts are on continuing ert at this age. Value your opinion and insight. Thanks!!!

    1. I am not a doctor, but here is the latest info from the North American Menopause Society: Dspite the fact that the current data points to the effectiveness of Hormone Therapy (HT) for the relief of menopausal symptoms, women are still so skeptical. The current published evidence from the WHI (Women’s Health Initiative) suggests that HT is a relatively safe solution for menopausal women under the age of 60 or within 10 years of postmenopause. In addition, HT does not need to be routinely discontinued in women aged older than 60 or 65 years and can be considered for continuation beyond age 65 years for persistent hot flashes, quality-of-life issues, or prevention of osteoporosis after appropriate evaluation and counseling of benefits and risks. (You can read more about HT here.)
      Hope this is helpful!

  2. Hi Ellen. This is my first time blogging. I am 55 years old. During the last year, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and the chemo treatment seemed to have exhilarated the menopausal symptoms. I’m now cancer free but during the last 2 months my life has been a roller coaster filled with emotions from sadness to crying. I’m presently seeing a psychiatrist and have been prescribed a new medication to help with my symptoms which I start tomorrow. I wish that I didn’t have tk feel like this. Also just before I was diagnosed I lost my husband 2weeks before to cancer. I hope to connect with women through this blog who can help me get through this very difficult time.

    1. I am so sorry that you are dealing with all of this. This is a lot at one time for anyone to have to deal with. Sending my sincere sympathies for the losss if your beloved husband. If you can, I always recommend seeing a grief therapist. If Hospice was called in for your husband, they are a great place to get a good referral. I am hopeful that your psychologist will find the right individual treatment that works for you. When I interviewed
      Oncologists at Yale Cancer Center they spoke about recommending black cohosh for their cancer survivors experiencing menopausal symptoms. at the time of my interview, they mentioned Remifemin as one of the purest choices. Perhaps chat with your Oncologist and/or Menopaause Specialist about it. Sending hugs …..❤️
