"I had a hysterectomy 3 years ago and went on HRT for a little over 2 years. I spoke with my doctor and decided I wanted to quit taking the hormones. Ughhhh! The hot flashes were terrible, but I didn't want to go back on the medication so I starting taking soy and black cohosh products. They helped alot, but I read that gamma orgazanol was very effective at alleviating menopausal symptoms. I added the gamma orgazanol to the soy and black cohosh products about 2 months ago and the hot flashes have almost disappeared."
