    My periods had disappeared for 6 months and back now regular enough but I bleed for up to 14 days. The bloating is awful and I feel my digestive system so slow, Im going to get optibac and yarrow but afraid to try meno support should I have stopped bleeding to go on it? Thanks in advance

      Hi Brenda, the Menopause Support is suitable and often helpful during all stages of the menopause, so this shouldn't be a problem and may be worth a try. Although having periods back is often quite common, it would just also be worth running this past your doctor. Best wishes, Emma

      Hi Jean Yes, more than likely! Whole soya foods such as soya milk can be really hard to digest so I would avoid them, I don't recommend these foods at all. However, soya supplements made with fermented soya (such as our Menopause Support) are usually OK, the soya in them has already been broken down by the fermentation process so shouldn't pose a problem.
