Need information on bioidenticals

Hello everyone
I am almost 5 years post TAH-BSO - I was on ClimaraPro patch for about 18 months a few years ago, but my Dr put such a scare into me that I weaned myself off.

Long story short: I honestly believe I am not living the best quality of life I can with night sweats, lack of sleep (I wake every 2 hours), moodiness, irritability...etc. I am sure you get the picture.

Yesterday I had an appointment with a midwife in my obgyn's office and she pushed hard for acupuncture, and a heavy consumption of various natural pills and capsules. I am sure they work great for some - but the cost could be high.

I have started to do research on my own regarding bio-identicals. Can anyone help me with this?
I feel that when I talk to my doctor, I am not given the whole picture in terms of what choices I can be making about the symptoms of menopause.

Yesterday this midwife told me that any woman who had reproductive cancer can't take hormones. But I thought bio-identicals were natural...am I wrong?
I never got the chance to ask her about these because she came on so strong with alternatives I was a bit overwhelmed!

Any help would be appreciated - I want to make a well-informed decision about my own body.
Thank you so much~~

Re: Need information on bioidenticals

Hello!

There's plenty of information about bioidentical hormones on this site, plus a lot of us here use them in various forms.

Bioidentical hormones are plant based (soy and yams) and are made to duplicate the hormones the ovaries made. They're natural in that respect but there are many doctors who won't prescribe any type of hormones for women who have had cancer. It's really something you will need to discuss with your doctor.

There's plenty of information about hormones, including bioidentical, in this link: Hormone Jungle Articles. There's a comprehensive list of hormone therapies here: Menopause Hormone Replacement Options. Bioidentical hormones are available at regular pharmacies and also can be specially made at compounding pharmacies.

I hope this helps you get started with your research!
