I feel for your friend.  Last February I had to have a hystorectomy.  I had a softball size cyst which had consumed my left ovary.  My uterus was nearly 10 times the size it should be due to fibroids.  I had told my  doctor I was experiencing menopausal symptoms, and she told me "that was immpossible, I was to young and on birth control".  Two years ago I ended up with a stress fracture in my femur ( 2 extremely painful surgerys and a lot of rehab) I am able to walk again.  Thanks to my Orthopedic surgeon, he got me an ultrasound and found the cyst.  It was because of this that my hormones were out of whack........and that lead to a rapid weakening of my bones.  
Keep the ovaries if at all possible.  The only thing I have found to calm menopausal symptoms is 100 mg of Trazadone.  
Please keep in mind I am only about 2+ weeks on living the BTD lifestyle, and hopefully Dr. Ds remedies will work equally as well.

joana, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forums!!
Your english is fine.......no worries.  
Have you had your adrenals checked. It would be very important for them to be working properly as they are involved in many hormones. Poor adrenals can throw your hormones out of whack very quickly. Here is some info:

There are several threads re: adrenal fatigue and other adrenal related issues. If I can find some, I'll post.

I also would like to mention a book called Lights Out..........it brings into play the importance of sleep on our systems.
Also a book called Your Bodies Many Cries for Water.........many people don't realize the importance of having enough water each day.http://www.amazon.com/Your-Bodys-Many-Cries-Water/dp/0962994235
Both of these books are really good and would prob help you out.
