I am very new to this site and I am hoping I can find some direction. I do not have insurance so I cant afford hormones of any kind. Anyone know of a good OTC remedy to help build up my energy? I am so tired, I worry how am I going to work full time when I cant make it through the day.

I also worry if not taking anything will harm me in the long run. I am 38 and have had a hysterectomy 4 yrs ago. I did take the Bio-Identical hormones until a year ago when I lost my job.

Any advice?

Did you know that Generic Estrace is available from most pharmacies for $4 for a 30 day supply. That is cheaper than any supplements.

Re: Fatigue/OTC

IMHO, you will probably pay just as much on supplements to try to alleviate symptoms as you will to see a doctor. If you had a doctor before perhaps you can call the office and explain. They may agree to only charge you what the insurance company would pay. You don't know, unless you try.

You might try Planned Parenthood... they do much more than just birth control these days, and they operate on a sliding scale according to income. Just an idea.
