Comment:
Early onset peri-menopause at 38 (now 48, full blown) and fear of hormones so I opted for lowest dose of 0.5/0.1. Hot flashes and night sweats gone. Severe vaginal itching still comes and goes along with dryness (add very expensive estrace crm). Problem: Just realized that weight issues, bloating, swelling are NOT normal despite an overall healthy but not perfect diet.
