    Just a thought for those of you who are experiencing problems. The vagina has its own microbiome, Perhaps looking into probiotics specifically for "women's health" might be helpful. Not sure which ones would be best to take but might be worth looking into.

    I've just started having my first chaotic periods (age 50) and suddenly have been flooded with symptoms (but have not yet gotten to see a gynecologist that's in another week +, so don't know yet for sure what's going on) -- the crushing fatigue, pain in the pelvis like I have a UTI but there is no infection, nausea, anxiety, sleeplessness, etc. I'm sorry to read about how difficult it has been for some on this thread! Amazing what some have endured. I'm just at the very start of this so am appreciating the knowledge . . .

    I'm replying to older thread but think this is an important topic. Everyone told me when the perimenopause migraines started that they would go away in menopause and I didn't believe them because nothing else about my health was typical. However, they did finally go away within 2 years menopause - like 100%. So I want to hold out hope for those dealing with migraines, too - if you have them. HRT didn't help one way or the other with migraines. And sinus infections being the hallmark of my ME/CFS - those got worse in menopause and am thinking it's epithelial cells and cilia health not strong in a way they were pre menopause. Any advice on that, I'd be interested in.
