They didn't work for me

Believe me, in desperation I tried them all during 10 years of suffering. Still had mood swings, hot flushes and night sweats. Interestingly, HRT had the worst side effects - cried non-stop for two days, couldn't go to work, couldn't sleep, so stopped that one in a hurry. Menopause is a natural phase of life, albeit a terrible one for some people like myself. Relieved to report that I did come out the other end with my sanity (and sense of humour) intact.

I first tried Remifemin and found it didn't make a difference. Switched to Harmony and thought it was helping till I moved house and packed them away by accident and couldn't find them. I'm still the same with or without them. Bless my partner for putting up with my s$%t.
