Is it common to experience mood swings and depression during the years leading into menopause and immediately after?
I guess I'm now in menopause, because I'm having symptoms. I am going to start bioidentical hormone therapy with a doctor who specializes in this type of hormone therapy. Once I start on this hormone therapy, will it remain the same or will the amount of supplemental hormones have to change as I grow older? (I am 49, and the longest I have gone without a period is four to five months.)
Is it true that one of the side effects of uterine fibroid embolization is early menopause? If I had this procedure (UFE) done and my periods were regular for seven month afterward and then suddenly stopped in March, should I be concerned?
I'm noticing a drop in sexual desire, but I don't want to use hormones, drugs or herbs. Are there any alternatives?
I'm an African-American woman, and I've heard that we're much less likely to get osteoporosis than Caucasian or Asian women. Is this true even if I'm tall and thin?
