A natural solution for menopause: My experience with hormone replacement creams

Published Mar 18, 2024


Let's face it, perimenopause and menopause can be a roller-coaster. Hot flashes, fatigue, mood swings – the list goes on.

I knew something was changing in my body around the age of 50. The sleep issues started first, then came the brain fog and that ever-present feeling of exhaustion.

My usual pep and positive outlook seemed to be fading. On top of it all, my skin, which had always been pretty good, started looking dull and dry.

I wasn't thrilled with the idea of going on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with a prescription. The potential side effects worried me, and frankly, the idea of popping pills that aren’t from a natural source just didn't feel right. However, I knew I couldn't ignore these changes. I craved my old energy back, and I missed feeling like myself.

That's when I started researching natural alternatives. After reading a lot of articles and talking to a close friend who had a positive experience, I decided to give natural hormone replacement cream a try.

I visited my local health store and discovered that they offer a selection of creams specifically formulated for women experiencing perimenopause and menopause. It contained bioidentical hormones, which are supposed to mimic the hormones our bodies naturally produce.

Now, I'm not going to lie, I was a little sceptical at first. But within a few days, I started noticing a difference. The hot flashes, which had been plaguing me for months, began to lessen in frequency and intensity. More importantly, I felt more energetic.

The mental clarity was a welcome change too. The brain fog gradually improved, and I found myself thinking sharper and more engaged. But perhaps the most surprising benefit was the improvement in my mood. The irritability and anxiety that had become my new normal started to fade. Within days I felt more optimistic and in control of my emotions.

It wasn't just how I felt on the inside, though. The changes on the outside were noticeable too. My skin started to regain its glow. The dryness lessened, and my skin felt firmer. It wasn't a dramatic change, but it was an improvement that made me feel more confident in my own skin.

Of course, everyone's experience is different. What works for me might not work for everyone. But for me, natural hormone replacement cream has been a game-changer. It's helped me navigate menopause in a natural way, without the worry of harsh side effects.

Here are some key takeaways from my experience

Do your research

Not all natural hormone replacement creams are created equal and some are stronger than others.

Talk to someone

It's important to discuss any new supplements or treatments with a natural health care professional.They can help you choose the right combination and monitor your progress.

Be patient

It may take a few weeks to see the full effects of the cream. Don't get discouraged if you don't feel a difference overnight.

Listen to your body

Pay attention to how you feel after starting the cream. If you experience any negative side effects, stop using it and consult your doctor.

Overall, I'm happy I decided to give natural hormone replacement cream a try. It's helped me feel like myself again, with renewed energy, improved mood, and even better skin.

If you're experiencing the symptoms of perimenopause or menopause and are hesitant about traditional HRT, it might be worth exploring natural alternatives.
