Hot Flashes will not go away

I was using Maca supplements and they stopped my hot flashes. Then I moved onto progesterone cream and found it helped with my other peri-menopause symptoms and I stopped using Maca.

However, the hot flashes return when I don't take maca so I wondered if it's ok to use both together? I did try using extra progesterone cream when I got a hot flash but it wasn't helping.

I've been getting them for 2 years now and cannot wait till it all ends.

Maca is excellent and yes you can use them together. Maca might have cancer protecting properties too, so is worth taking just for that if nothing else. The amount of progesterone you're using could have a bearing on why it's not helping the hot flushes. You should be using between 100-200mg/day. This is the range used in all successful studies done on progesterone, please try to use somewhere in this range. Take care, Wray.

Hot Flashes that won't go away
by: Anonymous

I have been in menopause for 10 years. for 9 of these years I have been on the Bio Identical Hormone therapy. I have been to 4 different hormone doctors and nobody seems to be able to help me. I am spending a fortune of money on creams and doctors appt's. I go through periods of time when I seem to be ok, then BAM! the flashes and sweating start up again no matter if I increase the creams or decrease them. Its seems that if I just sit still ALL the time I am fine (except at night when the night sweats start) but as soon as I start to move, like to get dressed, dust or vaccum my house, the profuse sweating starts. My hair never seems to be dry, my clothes never seem to be dry, my body is in a pretty constant state of profuse sweating. This has been going on for 10 years now, when is it gonna ever stop!!!!
