Hi Anonymous, thank you for the question.
As long as you are monitoring your blood levels twice a year (hormones, calcium, cholesterol, etc), undergoing a full medical twice a year, and having a bone scan performed once a year there should be no problem with choosing the ‘natural’ route. As the estrogen begins to drop cardiovascular protective effects are reduced and your blood pressure may begin to increase and cholesterol levels may rise. If one can pick up any changes to these early on and as long as you are feeling fine (no tiredness, lethargy, mood swings, hot flushes, insomnia, etc) then continue the course you are on.
