Potential problems. : Every cell in a woman's body has estrogen and Progesterone receptors, so the entire body suffers once in menopause (when estrogen and Progesterone production cease completely). Symptoms range from depression, insomnia, hot flashes, fatigue, brain fog, to vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, low libido, dry skin, urine leakage, to increased risk of osteoporosis, dementia, and heart disease.
