  • when my mother suffers from this problem at the age of 48 she got several symptoms like hot flushing, sweating at night, panic, anxiety, depression then after prescribing from the she starts to take menopause care pack by planet ayurveda.

  • I’m premenopausal, I just got off the birth control, and yr. No period for a year, I got it in my 49, so if I take estrogen to conceive? What kind of herb can I take?? My doctor want to do a ultrasound, or should I do detox my body??

  • I started experiencing ALL the symptoms of menopause after my Uterine Fibroid Embolization procedure a couple months ago. I requested a blood work by my Primary Doctor to figure out what is going on with my body, but the tests came back normal (FSH & LH) ��. I’m miserable and feel so alone and misunderstood…so I’m glad I came found this page for the support. In the meantime, I was prescribed anti-depressants until me and my doctor can figure out a plan of action. I’m definitely going to try that progesterone cream.

  • I have been following only some of the suggestions from Dr. Anna and I sleep better and have lost 3 pounds. Thank you so much. ��

  • The last year of my perimenopause was the worst time of my life. High levels of anxiety, breast pain, heavy periods, mood changes and don’t forget shortness of breath. That is a big one!! I l literally convinced myself that i was always on the verge of a heart attack or stroke due to the heart palps and difficulty breathing. Ladies, vitamin D and probotics were a huge help during this time, also vitamin B12. I am now in menopause and the symptoms are not that bad, but the last year was horrible. Good luck ladies, stay strong, you’ve got this!

  • She nailed it at the end with the Doctor advice. I was told by my primary and Gyno that I was to young. I was 40 when I first mentioned to my primary. Then two years later spoke to my Gyno who wanted to put me on Prozac. I have an extreme high sensitivity to any anti d’s and birth controls. I asked about getting blood work done. She said it’s not accurate. She then suggested progesterone cream. I told her I would research it more before I decided. I then emailed her a week later and told her I was interested in it and asked her to write me the prescription. She said you can order it on Amazon and didn’t recommend an exact brand to me. I was shocked. I am now 43 going on 44. I defiantly know I am going through Perimenopause. Follow your heart ladies. This woman knows her info. Thank you for posting this. ��

  • Emmmmmm interesting am in my 40s am 46 and am going through hell I don’t know what to or not to what to eat and what not eat am always depressed anxiousness anxiety it’s been a like I don’t knowoooo pains in my shoulders oh my God in will so happy if someone can help me

  • I found out last September through yearly blood work that my estrogen was very low so I went to my gynecologist and she prescribed perm pro and it seemed to work but I gained 20lbs right away ��. It also started making me have night sweats and a really short temper so I stopped it and started estroven OTC but would love to be feel normal and happy again because I sure don’t.

  • Hi,I had womb cancer march 2018 so I had a full hysterectomy and remove cervix and ovaries,since then my life’s been awful.My doctor said I can’t have hrt as it might start cancer again so I’ve just be left to deal with it.. please help me

  • Awesome…this is so helpful. I am grateful this conversation popped up in my feed. She really did help us!! No one went into this with me…and I’m a nurse…she is so spot on regarding fixing the other baseline stuff first. Totally answered why I have lost my cute butt and now have a menopot instead!

  • the problem is everyones body is different. No 1 thing will work for everyone. There are so many symptoms with menopause. I know I have had a swirl of changes for the past 2 years but zero hot flashes.. I think for my its cortisol levels. I used to live a very vivacious life hiking 10 miles/ dog walking, dancing etc. even though I ate well balanced whole food (never coffee no drinking) and did yoga and meditate through prayer… Did things that others say help, didnt help. I crashed with major fatigue, brain fog, dizziness, mood swings, joint pain…suddenly my body refused to move literally too exhausted to walk 100 yards. suddenly craving junk food and sugar couldn’t concentrate enough to meditate or read… I have tried many supplements: black cohosh, chasteberry, dhea, ginseng, ashgawanda, chayawanprash, dang gui, diascorea/wild yam, seed cycling, vit b, magnesium…. ugh. I enen use hormone blend of essential oil…. For me I need to just learn to slow down or my body would force it upon me. Not I learned I should eat more often:)

  • You’re right, suffering from menopause is not necessary, just change your diet and you will no longer have hot flashes. Hormon therapy is unnecessary, waste of money and time.

  • All of these symptoms began end of 2018 at age 43 years old, it started with my periods slightly changing length of days + time it would come. Next in 2019 age 44 years old were the terrible aches and pains all over, insomnia and night sweats. The weight gain began before 40, but suddenly some weight loss mid 2019. I tried keto for 3 months and lost weight, almost like resetting my metabolism, much of the pain went away. Unfortunately I developed pcos and adenomyosis (reproductive issues) both incurable. The pcos caused multiple cysts and one on an ovary had ruptured. All of this is hormone driven. My obgyn didn’t and still doesn’t want to do anything, but sit and wait. In the meantime my primary sent me for a mammogram and I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Hormone receptor positive 95% estrogen influenced. This is nuts. I encourage all to do whatever it takes to balance your hormones and if your current doctor is of no help, please find someone that you’re happy with. Take care.

  • I’m taking Transition.. it’s all natural. I think I’m doing better. I mean I’m not annoyed by my husband eating doritos but I did tell off a few people recently. Very calm and collectively, but I had absolutely no filter. My husband is either laughing at me or frightened. I’m really goin through a crazy menopause.. I’m 49. In some ways I do like that I don’t care about hurting people’s feelings who manipulate me to do what they want me to do…that’s something I kinda like…��

  • I found the new book of the woman in this video and just ordered it. I got the link and came back over here to post it, in case anyone else needs it. She also offers one on one consultations that I just saw on her website for about $250 USD to determine what your problems are. (I haven’t tried it as I can’t afford that.) ��

    I hope this book helps as much as the video because I’m tired of feeling like crap. Here you go, sisters.*

  • I am angry at my doctor. At 40, 4 years ago, I told him (a Yale graduate) I was having so many issues and he said I was way too young for perimenopause. My doctors all blamed my smoking. I got so disgusted I stopped going to the docs. A doc tested my hormones once and said, “nope, it’s normal.” 4 years later, here are my symptoms which have only gotten worse:

    URINARY:
    Sudden urge to pee starting in 2014 and gradually worsening over the years. It’s now getting to the point that it comes on immediately out of nowhere, and I’m using every muscle in my body to hold it. My eyes suddenly do this… �� and I have to get to the bathroom within 10 seconds and am in agony until I reach the bathroom, and it’s already ready to pour out like a waterfall
    Random aching of pelvic area while peeing. Sometimes it feels like a kidney stone.

    NERVE PAIN:
    Severe burning in a toe every few days that lasts for several days, which has progressed to now nerve pains in feet, and legs. It disappears, then reappears days later. Last year I had random pins and needles in legs, which progressed to arms and hands, and randomly disappeared after about 4 or 5 days.

    MENTAL HEALTH:
    Anxiety attacks worsened, even got better, then worse again.
    Depression constantly.
    Anger & intolerance
    No patience

    MENSTRUAL:
    Spotting on and off for days, which never have before. This started a couple months ago. I’m on the POP pill for years, bc docs won’t let me go back on regular pills which I’ve been on since I was 16 to regulate my period. If I’m more than an hour late taking my pill, I’m spotting 2 days later and sometimes get sharp pains like I have ovarian cysts twisting or something.

    SKIN:
    A mole I’ve had for 25 years randomly turned dry and scaly. Went to a dermatologist and she said “it’s a wart.” No it’s not, genius. That is a mole that got dry during a hormone flare-up.

    PHYSICAL:
    Queasy on and off randomly.
    Weight fluctuations.
    Major craving for sugar.
    Migraines & TMJ
    -Sensitivity to heat/cold

    SLEEP
    -Sleeping disturbances

    Anyone else have a similar pattern? I am losing my mind.

  • Thanks for this. Yeah, I just finished a 1 hour video about HR and side affects over time and only Premarin and Progestin were covered. The usual, increase risks of heart attacks, blood clots, etc. Not a word about Progesterone, only that there are no comparative clinical studies..well,..why not??

  • Hi I’m 49 perimenopausal, suffering allergic rhinitis, my rhinitis worse, i have breathing problem, i felt i have asthma, I’m always crying i felt I’m dying.
    My symptoms started January14,2020.
    I’m always research what i need to do, what i need to eat and supplements i need to take.
    First time i experienced symptoms, i thought i have severe illness and I’m dying. ����������������
    Until now I’m searching how to lessen my palpitations, anxiety, sleep problem, shortness of breath,
    Tingling, dizziness, feeling vomiting, fatigue.
    Doctor here in the Philippines cannot help me, they always told me to help my self. That’s why I’m here. I need help, thanks in this video.

  • So interesting. I had soaking night sweats 10 years ago but I didn’t drink alcohol. Now my periods switched from 2-3 weeks ( for 2 yrs) to 5-7 weeks apart and now drink red wine.
    My mom has ONE hot flash, NO night sweats and her periods just stopped…. I’m not having the same experience. My transition is definitely dragging on.

  • My last period was aged 38, I was told too young for menopause. I’ve had no help, just struggled through, offered antidepressants ��

  • Progesterone doesn’t do squat when your estrogen is through the roof. Birth control pills literally saved my life as I became severely anemic from the blood loss even with 300mg of prometrium each night. I feel like a new person on the birth control. I’m still bitter that I wasted time trying the natural crap and suffering.

  • Thank you so much for having Anna come on to your channel. This is kind of emotional to watch because I am 36 and I have been diagnosed with premenopause after thinking I was pregnant for the first time. It is hard and I have no one to talk to or ask questions because even my doctor seems confused by it. I am so happy to see they are people like Anna. We need more people like her because this is an overlooked part of a woman’s life.. you don’t really hear anyone talking about it unless they are making jokes about their hot flashes.

  • I’ve had five beautiful children and I find that I have similar symptoms as anxiety and moodiness during post partum phases. I wish there was more information about this also.

  • So my wife of over 17 years just turned 40 last month and out of nowhere she started with hot flashes and was suffering with insomnia, so I did the natural “guy” thing and figured I had done something wrong and took it very personally since I essentially got pushed to the side and felt very much ignored. It was such a drastic change I seriously thought she was/is planning to leave me for some reason. I asked several times what did I do and she got frustrated and said it’s not me it’s just part of life. So once I got off my pity party and stopped internalizing it all I started to research peri menopause and all the fazes associated with this part of a woman’s life and I can honestly say I seriously feel so bad for you all having to deal with it, and from a guys prospective I just want to say we seriously do care and would love nothing more than to help! The nature tendency for us is to “fix” it and I now know it’s kind of out of our control other than just being here for support and understanding. Unfortunately my wife is still kind of pushed me to the side and I feel very much alone most of the time. Eventually I hope so much she will open back up to me and I am allowed to assist her and be there for her. Is there any advice some of you out there would give me in helping her thru this time in our lives?? Thanks so much in advance!

  • Just an FYI, that my menopause symptoms were so severe that I gave up caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, all white sugar and white flour, etc. I was so desperate to reduce the symptoms and I can tell you that giving up those things did not make any difference in my symptoms except depress me even more than I already was. And I gave them up for almost 2 years with no relief of the symptoms. I also tried all of the herbal remedies from a Natural Path for those 2 years and they did not help except keep me broke as they are very costly. In the end, I went on a estrogen replacement therapy and in 1 week my symptoms were significantly reduced. After 3 weeks, I no longer had any more symptoms. I reclaimed my life again.
