Great Burnet for menopausal symptoms?
Menopause has greeted me in a most peculiar way - my flow started six weeks ago, and it has not stopped. An ultrasound revealed the presence of several small fibroids and an ovarian cyst, but nothing that would explain my symptoms. The Dr. believes I have stopped ovulating, he prescribed a limited supply of progestrin which helped for a few days but lost it's efficiency quickly.
I've started taking supplemental iron, but it hasn't helped much with the fatigue and dizzy spells, which are gaining in intensity. I'm considering using a decotion of Great Burnet rootstock to relieve the symptoms. If anyone has experience with using this herb I'd appreciate any advice, contraindictions, or possible alternatives if they would be more applicable. I'll be discussing this with my Dr. when I see him later this week, but any suggestions would be most welcome.
