I'm 56 years old and post-menopausal 12 years. No known health problems other than diverticulitis.

I am experiencing dry eyes, mental fog, joint aches, blurry vision, and most suddenly, vaginal dryness with a very light (one time) pink stain. I understand these to be symptoms of low estrogen. I am also under a lot of stress at this time if that makes a difference. Stress also threw me into menopause, in my opinion. :(

I have not and will not take HRT. I was thinking of Omega 3's and Flaxseed oil along with a vaginal moisturizer? I would like to take a more natural route on this if possible. I used black cohosh (Remifemin) during the menopause transition and it worked well for me.

Any questions, comments or something that you or anyone else might recommend? Thanks in advance. :)
