    all good.

    keep us posted!
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    So --- Evening Primrose and Black Cohosh are working wonderfully to ease the hot flashes and night sweats!

    Dong Quai is working wonderfully on the libido!

    i haven't (yet) had side effects like vaginal dryness, so am wondering if the dong is helping there too?

    Haven't read the whole thread so sorry if someone has mentioned this already. I have heard Traditional Chinese medicine is supposed to be great for balancing hormones, including during menopause.

    Yes - I'm still here! The dong quai has really helped things! Although no action since last weekend cuz I developed a bit of "honeymoon-itis" (UTI) and have been trying to ward that off with cranberry and ACV drinks. But I am looking forward to playtime with hubby this weekend! As for the vag. dryness.......... no longer an issue here either. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

    My doc told me acupuncture was really good for hot flashes. Mine are not so intense or as frequent now that I'm taking the EPO and the Black Cohosh - but I think I will give the acupuncture a try. I wonder if they do that at my doctors office? Need to check.
