As silly as that title may sound... its a very serious issue! I am 34 years old and I believe this is menopause for me! History: I had an emergency hystorectomy when I was 24. My uterus and one ovary was removed. I am not, and can not be placed on hormone replacements. 2 reasons: my family line has breast cancer very thick on both sides - and I also have no health insurance. So therefore, can not even see a doctor to help me.... and I am MISERABLE!!! To the point where I don't even feel like a woman anymore. Here is my admission (someone show my poor husband, lol) I AM SO MOODY, I suffer from (what I believe) hot flashes - mostly at night, headaches, lack of interest in sex, severe weight gain ... just to name a few. Is this normal for someone in my condition? What can I do? Any natural supplements? Home rememdies? Or help on how I can get help health-insurance wise? All suggestions/ideas are appreciated.View Thread
