I started taking black cohosh for my hot flashes a few days ago when should I expect its effect

Hard to tell.: Supplements like cohash, soy, chasteberry have estrogen like activity but they are not estrogen and are less likely to help with some of the stronger hot flashes that women have as they transition thru menopause. Some women do find them helpful but many do not. I would think if your are going to see improvement you would see within the first several weeks. Generally felt to be a safe product. ...Read more

I am going through menopause and began taking black cohosh to relieve symptoms. I have hpv. Is this ok?

I am going through menopause and began taking black cohosh to relieve symptoms. I have hpv. Is this ok?

Probably ok: There were some early studies that showed black cohash could be helpful in alleviating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes. This should be fine as long as: one takes the lowest effective dose, that dose does not exceed what is recommended by the manufacturer, that there is no interaction with other medications, and that one is being followed medically by their doctor. ...Read more
