Okay ladies, here's what's happening. I had a hysterectomy two years ago, leaving the ovaries in place. I'm 39, and believe I am now in peri-menopause. I think this because I have the occasional night sweat (once every eight weeks or so), and monthly mood swings. These are getting worse. In fact, the last two days I spent alternately crying, and raging at things. Is there anything I can take to even out the moods? I try to tell my hubby that I can't help it, that it's hormonal. There's no warning - it just hits. I'm better today. What about something like St. John's Wort when I feel it hit? Any thoughts?
