There are sprays, creams, gels, patches, a vaginal ring, and pills. Pick one, start low, and go up on the dose slowly until you get some relief! it can take months to stabilize.

Are the side effects for a partial hysterectomy the same as full (still have ovaries) ie;early onset of menopause, anxiety, depression, dizziness fatigue, insomnia, memory problems, mood swings, nervousness and etc. Should I pay for a saliva testing (zrt)

Are the side effects for a partial hysterectomy the same as full (still have ovaries) ie;early onset of menopause, anxiety, depression, dizziness fatigue, insomnia, memory problems, mood swings, nervousness and etc. Should I pay for a saliva testing (zrt)
