Karen: My gyn told me about soy as replacement therapy for menopause. I
really trust my gyn as he WILL NOT do any more surgery on me where I have had
others in the past who would go in at the drop of a hat. (Usually mine).
When I 1st went to see him, (the dr who did my hyst died not long after of
cancer) he wanted to know why I was on such a high dose of estrogen. I was
having really BAD hot flashes & nite sweats. That was when he tpold me re
the endo & that estrogen would only make the endo worse, "feed" it in a way.
He suggested soy, I've been on it ever since w/good results!
I'm not sure re still having endo after natural menopause. My gyn didn't say
anything to the effect that it would go away just because of menopause.
