Hi specialmom. I used flaxseeds (ground in a coffee grinder) for awhile (years ago) along with estrogen but don't recall the effects. And since I was also on estrogen, it wouldn't be a "fair" assessment anyway. I have read that it helps some women.
I tried Flax seed oi, didn't do a thing for me unfortunately. What helped a wee bit was bio-identical progesterone cream which can be purchased at most health food stores. But even then, nothing spectacular,but it is so good for other things as well. Read the book by Dr. Lee, it is called" what your doctor won't tell you about menopause" There is another one he wrote called "what your doctor won't tell you about Peri-menopause" both are great and give you many ideas on what to do and take.
