I bought "New Phase Complete" to help with some of the problems I have been having. Do you know if it will really help. Do you have any suggestions on what to take or do. I am 27.

First, I had no idea you were only 27. Now I feel like such an OLD person.

I googled this product to see what it had in it.

One of the ingredients is isoflavones, which are present in many soy products. I also see it has B vitamins and calcium.

I've known people who took this sort of thing for the hot flashes and swore by it. I can't say I've ever had to take anything like this.

Just one word of caution. If you decide to go through with your surgery, you'll probably need to discontinue using this BEFORE they do any cutting. Lots of products that use herbal ingredients must be discontinued before any type of surgery or you run the risk of bleeding. Be sure to mention it to your Dr. if he decides to get you scheduled.

Another ingredient is "Standardized Black Cohosh Root Extract".

There are NIH clinical trials (http://nccam.nih.gov/clinicaltrials/blackcohosh.htm) that are ongoing and that will be starting soon to study this particular substance.

Industry studies (http://www.herbalgram.org/default.asp?c=menopauseupdate) (sponsored by the companies that make the supplements) claim it to be effective, for whatever that is worth.

And a +1 to SG's thought about caution. Not that these are dangerous, but the herbal supplements can sometimes have drug interactions (so its good for the docs to know about it).
