Body is changing

Hi Everyone:

I'm a healthy 52 year old.  Blood tests show I am post-menopause but still get the occasional period.  I am aware that the blood tests aren't always that accurate.  

So far, not too many symptoms.  Will get a bit warm at night but that's about it.  The most distressing thing is that I'm noticing the development of the dreaded menopot.  No change in weight.  I'm very active (run, bike, hike and weight train) - 5'3" and about 115 lbs so I don't need to lose weight.  

My question is will bioidentical hormone replacement help stop the menopot or is this inevitable regardless of what I do.

Thanks.

thanks, I guess I need to research on them. I am on estrace, and it is making me gain weight, 10 lbs in 2 weeks. Don't need that on top of everything else.

take care........Peggy

You need a prescription from your doctor and this is then filled at a compounding pharmacy since it's not a one size fits all prescription.  Unfortunately, it can sometimes be difficult to find a doctor who is familiar with bioidentical hormones so it may take some leg work.
