I am now 62 years old and have severe hot flashes (actually sweat flashes), night sweats, mood swings, dizzy spells, panic attacks, heart palpitations and just about every other symptom I have seen with everyone else who has these issues.I have absolutely no sex drive which my husband doesn't really like and I have a constant pain under my left rib (not sharp, just aching)which the doctors have yet to determine. I suffered from pain and bleeding of endometriosis from the time I was 27 until I had a total hysterectomy in 1987. The doctor said he had to separate my organs due to adhesions. When the doctors suggested hormone replacement we had to experiment with drugs and doses until I got to Estratest twice a day to stop the hot flashes and night sweats. I took that for the ten years I was "allowed" because breast cancer runs in my immediate family. My husband said the medicine affected my personality. After that I tried wild Yam cream like someone suggested but didn't see any results. I tried black cohosh and other herbal remedies but they either didn't work or I developed allergies to them. I would like to be able to feel a normal temperature without sweating and freezing for a while but the doctors don't have any answer for me. I just ordered this cream and hope that it works.

Sex Headaches
by: shalzimar

I have had sex headaches for the past two months. I would describe it as a migraine that starts right at orgasm. This headache is strong and lasts for the rest of the day. Is there any information on what causes or helps this?
