HI everyone, I'm looking for some feedback on early menopause and treatment. I'm 28 yrs old and after a Stem Cell Transplant, I was dx with pre-mature menopause. I'm looking into treatment. Birth Control, HRT, and Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Thearpy. I don't have many symptoms related to menopause, but fear osteoprosis and heart disease. Most women going thru menopause are in there late 40's-early 50's. Once this change occurs they are at risk for both of these conditions. I'm 28 so I'm freaking out. From my research, I see that birth control and HRT put us at higher risk for cancer, which after treatment I already have a chance of getting a secondary cancer. Bio Identical Hormones seem to be more promising. Can any women who are around my age and experience this give me some feedback? Thank you
Amy
