So I headed out to go for my lovely pap-smear at my OB/Gyn’s office last week. My doctor is fantastic. She sat there and talked to me for about 30 minutes before she ever started the actual exam.
Once she was ready for me to get into position for the pap-smear, wouldn’t you know it??? I got a CHARLEY-HORSE in my right leg!!! Talk about BAD TIMING!!! (I have to admit — it WAS funny!)
Since I’ve been having at least one hot flash every 30 minutes, she wanted to put me on hormones. (I had 2 or 3 of them while in her office.) However, hubby and I weren’t comfortable with that.
I have been taking Menopause Essentials from Swanson Vitamins, but they don’t seem to be working as well as they did when I first started them. After reading a book on other natural choices, I decided to add evening primrose oil. So I took 2 of them one night before bed, then took another one the next morning. The result was IMMEDIATE!!! I only had ONE hot flash that day! That is nothing short of AMAZING!!!
It’s been four days now, and I have only had one or two hot flashes a day.
