yes, i know, i hear that, but i also have gotten hundreds of emails in the last couple years saying they had the exact same thing happen. it is part of post tubal ligation syndrome, and it doesn't happen to everyone, but to a lot of women. i have had the bloodwork done, but they never check hormone levels, because my dr says it is not necessary. he says all that needs tested is the fsh and if that is menopausal, the hormones will be,too. he put me on HRT, which causes cancer. it made me feel better, but i only took it a month because i know about the cancer. so, i went to natural homones or so i thought. i have the made at a compounding pharmacy, but they are synthetic, which i guess is ok, but tey cost a lot and she puts some cinnamon in them that i hate and cannot stand to put on without feeling ill. she won't stop. and it is hard to find one of those places, another one is many miles away. so, i buy it overseas and it costs about the same, expensive. but it doesn't work well at all. compared to birth control pills or HRT, it does virtually nothing. i cannot afford to take half a jar a day or more, since it is like $60 a jar (a small one). i take the dose it says to take and just do not have any luck. i upped it and had no luck. to up it more, would cost me hundreds a month, can't do it and not sure it would work, anyway.
