Terrific along with the progesterone cream
Terrific along with the progesterone cream
This cream in conjunction with the progesterone cream by the same group (emerita) found here on iherb has saved my mind. I also take Nature's Way DIM-Plus found here on iherb as well for ESTROGEN ABSORPTION which is a must if you are on estrogen cream. I'm also a biology major at 49 years old in college so hear me out on this. If you are having hormone deficiency in estrogen/progestrogen, then you might also have issues with testosterone which we women also produce in small quantities that then helps us absorb estrogen. Otherwise these creams are good for a short while and then the estrogen just sits there and doesn't have a place to go because there's no testosterone distributing it (for those of us who are also deficient in it). DIM-Plus helps you absorb the estrogen and doesn't hurt you. So I use all three and man I wonder why I wasn't doing this ten years ago. I truly believe menopause must be a very gradual thing and we all think that PMS is driving us nutts perhaps at 35 to 40 but really it might be a gradual menopause. I have suffered for years with various symptoms. Then I went into a major menopause shift with hot flashes two years ago and suffered a great deal. I tried black cohosh and other vitamin mixes and it didn't help that much. I went to my doc in July and she put me on the estrogen patch and prometrium pills (which I hate...I was on these a few years ago). I had a really bad reaction to the patches, gained 20 pounds in one month (kid you not), bloated, lethargic ...horrible. So I trashed those and went with these creams and the relief is indescribable!! Just in time for this semester too so I can *think* for once instead of feeling awful and vulnerable all the time. Get all three products above and you will feel *better* than ever.
I have had surgery for severe endometriosis and have only one ovary left and the other one has been traumatised from surgery. As a result I was having 20 hot flashes a day and being woken at night with them. I have always avoided estrogen due to thinking all estrogen was "bad." However, I realised due to my symtoms I was lacking estrogen because I have used natural progesterone cream for years and it was obvioulsy not enough. Anyway, I noticed a difference in days. Hot flashes were decreased by about 10 % first day, but gradually they got less and less and by the time 1 to 2 weeks were up they were totally gone! Have also had my hormone levels and checked and estrogen is in a good range. I was worried it would make it too high. I actually tried DIM to help with the estrogen problems and hot flashes first but it actually increased my hot flashes even though it seems to work for other people. Anyhow, this works incredibly. I no longer dread the feeling of a hot flash coming on. I love this stuff. It's amazing, especially considering it's natural which means it's 'good' not 'bad' estrogen. ----------------------------------------- UPDATE: Changing from 5 stars to 1 star. I am adding to this review because this product has stopped working completely. I am having the same number and severite of hot flashes as before. Seems it stops working after a period of time - for me anyhow unfortunately :(

This seemed to give me hot flashes!! Way too old for them and you'd think it would do the opposite. Maybe I needed to use it longer, but I gave up.

I have used it for years. I like receiving my supplements by skin instead of by mouth.

This was the first time I had ordered with this company so I checked them out to ensure they are legitimate as I'm from the UK and this is a US company. I needn't have worried, they are a good company and forwarded the Emerita within 24 hours of my on-line order. It took 14 days to arrive as expected for the standard $4 postal fee to the UK. Unfortunately, I was charged £4.13 in UK import VAT and an £8 handling fee by the UK post office (around $20 in total) on an order value of $35, ouch! So, if you are ordering from the UK make sure the value of your order is under £15 to avoid these fees (around $25).Check out the Post office website for further information. The product itself is brilliant, I used to be able to get it here in the UK, sadly not anymore. Following an early Hysterectomy with loss of an ovary, I began to get the most horrendous hot flushes, every 1/2 hour all day and all night, it was overwhelming. My GP was useless an I was desperate after 10 months of little sleep, constantly taking clothes off then back on again, sweat running off me, showering several times a day and the sheer exhaustion took its toll. I did some research and found this natural product, within a week the flushes had reduced! I got into a good rhythm using the cream for 3 weeks and then having 2 weeks off it, trying to mimic my cycle before the menopause, this has worked fairly well. My life is now worth living, I still get flushes but they are much less in intensity and less frequent. I'm 54 now and had to do without Emerita for 2 months because I couldn't get it; the flushes came back again as bad as before. This cream has phytoestrogen, which is what I need, do your research as you may need the Pro-gest cream (by Emerita) depending on your problem. When I run out again I will order from i-Herb, but it will be for 1 tube to keep below the VAT import rate!
works for me

I have been using this product for over a year and I find it keeps me balanced and cool-headed. I was going through some mood swings and hot flashes and not a little depression and since using this product in combination with the emerita progesterone cream I am completely free of symptoms. I have found it reliable for the long haul, not just a short-term fix.
