i was told by the macmillan nurse to avoid supplements. plant phytoestrogens although not proved conclusive as bad, as i am ER+ i would rather not add more into my body, just in case it turns out that they are bad.
i changed the time i took my tamoxifen and the hot flushes are more manageable now.
I took sage leaf capsules and agnus cactus during my menopause. The sage leaf only had sage in it so in the end I decided to save money and just incorporate more fresh sage into my cooking. You can also make sage tea. No one seems to worry if you use herbs in cooking but it becomes a problem if you take it as a supplement.
