I am horrified to read all these messages about 45 to 50 year olds with menopausal symptoms. Is this because we all had children later in life? I listened very carefully to the doctor talking about HRT which is a lot better and safer than it was in the old days when my Mum took it. I have tried two ways of taking HRT and it hasn't really kicked in yet, but the forgetfulness and the mood swings for me made me feel horrible. I went into early menopause because I had a hysterectomy at 44 and the one thing they don't tell you when you keep your ovaries is that naturally because they don't have a job to do anymore, they give up working. Thanks. I had read lots of good advice. You should talk to your children about it, so they understand that the shouting is not their fault. I go off at the deep end for no good reason at all which is bad for me as well as for them, but I would like to hear if anyone has any good natural remedies they have tried as I feel that I have lost control of my lfe which is leading me to feel very depressed. I am naturally a very happy optimistic person, but its hard to stay on top of it for everyone else's sake all the time.
