Finally Doctor helps me with menopause

I have had menopause symptoms for over 2 years and they made my life miserable. No more periods for a year now and was trying everything from natural products to diets to no success. After begging my doctor to give me something, anything, for my symptons of not sleeping, depression, tiredness, grouchyness, crying, feeling sorry for myself. At first he gave me water pills, sleeping pills, high blood pressure pills and well my blood pressure went down, that's it.
Finally I freaked out on him and like I was possesed or something and told him I would rather be dead than go through what is happening to me. He prescribed me progesterone 100mg and estradio-17 1mg and, guess what, after 2 weeks my symptons have lessened to half and I am blothed but I at least sleep half the night now. My problem is doctors are far from knowing what a menopausal woman goes through and they always have this excuse that it causes breast cancer. Well in my opinion there is a sucessful treatment for breast cancer but with menopause they make you suffer too long. Thanks.
