Hi Mary,  I know you and I haven't talked much, but since Jan's been gone it's hard for me to talk to Jan's friends, but I know she'd want me to help if I can.  I too had a hysterctomy a few years back and was slammed into menopause and went though some of what you are going through now.  So, if you ever want to talk e-mail me and I'll send you my phone number.  Lisa

(cont. again) I know a previously retired ER doctor in Wisconsin who has started a business of blood testing and implanting a custom HRT pellets around the hip or bottom area for women in menopause with great success.  He said his patients' main frustration has been urinary leaking and that this stops that and helps in many other ways. He is too far away for me and has an abrasive personality so I will not go to him.  I will try the Menopause Clinic in St. Paul.  Thanks so much for your help and sharing your experience.  It's so nice to know a fellow Vliet fan.

(cont. again from below) I started to contact a doctor in Maple Grove who works for BodyLogicMD.  They are Bioidentical advocates and have Suzanne Summers book on their website.  I haven't read her book so am not sure to what degree she aligns with Dr. Vliet's views.  They do a full spectrum of blood and saliva tests for around $500 to start and then you go from there.  They don't take insurance. The doctor has a youtube video and I'm not sure what to think of him. He is the only Bodylogic Doctor in Minnesota.

Cont. from below-My doctors would never have prescribed Ovcon 35 on their own (they didn't even know about it) and several times have tried to prescribe something different saying it had the "same ingredients" and it was completely different once again with lower estrogen and high prog. I would figure it out after feeling awful and then checking the ingredients. It really makes one wonder if doctors benefit in some way by promoting certain meds.

Hi Mary,  I'm not sure if this is private or how to send a private note. (new to this) So I'll send from here.  I guess I'm confused about the difference between Progesterone and Progestin.  I'll need to study that.  I'm an avid believer in Dr. Vliet's philosophy.  Years ago after doing my own hormone research at the library and with the Physicians Desk reference (w/ 3 small kids in tow), I figured out that I needed to be on Ovcon 35-so later when I came upon Dr. Vliet's book and realized that Ovcon 35 is exactly what she prescribes for women suffering with PMS I was thrilled.

Hi Mary,
I'm looking for a Dr. in the Twin Cities (I live in Eden Prairie) who prescribes bio identical hormones.  I have the same reaction to Progestin and Estrogen that you have had.  I like Estrogen and not Progesterone.  I am 46 and have been on Ovcon 35 for many years (high Est, low Prog-contraceptive) and it has been wonderful for me but causes me to have no sex drive.  Stopped taking the Ovcon a few months ago with the idea of possibly going to AZ to Dr. Vliet but would rather just find someone in town.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Thank you for everything! So good to hear from you Mary ~ you have been a very busy lady. I am just glad you are doing o.k, aside from needing to have surgery. Hope all goes well, and the week off finds you healing well, and enjoy the cuddle time. As to being on my friends list? you were, as were many others. My friends list, up and disappeared on me during one of my hospital stays back in October. Some sort of glitch on Medhelp..they were not able to get it back for me, and apologized for the inconvience. I had to readd everyone! As i rec'd or answered notes I have been slowly adding people back on again.
Thanks for the note take care and keep in touch.
((hugs))

Hi Mary,
It is always so nice to get a note from you. I hope you are doing alright? I guess it is a good thing to be busy at work, especially right now. Mine comes and goes. I like it both ways, lol.
I am ok. Still waiting on results. Got the results of my small bowel - normal. I just sat and cried. I see him Tuesday and I am taking a pic of my stomach after I eat. I might post it on here too. Not normal. Anyway, waiting about that and waiting on my pelvic CT. Always waiting LOL
Any plans for the 4th? We will be quiet here, the way I like it.Neighbors might shoot some fireworks up and we will watch from pool patio!
Take care, miss you too!

Thank you for the kind response Mary, She means the world to me. I hate that she is feeling so poorly, and just hope she gets some answers now that she is admitted. Hopefully it is easily corrected and she is home soon. Will post when I hear from her.
Thanks again

Hope you had a good birthday. Sorry for the late wishes. I'm also 56 and find it isn't as bad as I thought. Then again, when I was 16, I thought 40 was old. Happy maturity. LOL

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Happy, Happy Birthday. You are a beautiful 56 year old woman! I hope you enjoyed your day and did something for you!!
My hubby always says that he doesn't want to celebrate and I tell him, that is my favorite day of the year because he was born, and he wasn't born, we wouldn't be together!! so we celebrate!
Here is to you being born!!
