Can Feb Balance be used successfully by women who are still in the reproductive years or is it only for women who are entering menopause?  I'm only 33 and do not want to be in menopause yet at all!!   :-/

The description for Fem Balance states: "It can be used with confidence by women of all blood types."

I don't think it's only for women entering menopause; it will help to balance out womens' hormonal concerns.

Don't worry, Missy.  It won't throw you into menopause!  :-)
The herbs seem to be more for menopausal symptoms, but will also be relaxing for PMS and rich in minerals.
What would be your goal in taking the formula?

My main goal in taking Fem Balance would be to balance my hormones.  I've always had problems with this and even though I've seen improvements I just feel there's something missing hormonally that this might address.  I just do so much better in every way when my hormones are more balanced - but I'm having some changes in my periods where they're heavier and then they stop on about day 4 almost completely and then come back heavy again about day 5 or 6 almost like it's starting over and I just don't think that's quite right.  I used to be desparate to be pregnant as well, but that's not so important anymore since we're now pursuing our adoption.  It would be a wonderful surprise if it someday happened, but I can also honestly say I'd be at peace if I never carried a baby myself.  I could not have said that a few years ago though.

This symptom sounds like adrenal fatigue.  If that's the case, it could also help to explain difficulty conceiving.

I do think adrenal fatigue could be a problem for me - and yesterday our local mall had a health fair and I think I found a new doctor at our new birth center who will help me address some of these issues.  I told her about our adoption and that my goal really isn't to get pregnant anymore - just to be healthier overall and that I think there's something missing in my hormonal balance and that they're getting out of whack again and she said we could really investigate those things and she said she will do saliva hormone tests which I've never been able to get a dr to do for me - they've always been blood tests and I've read how for hormones those aren't as acurate - so I'm really excited to get an appointment with her - I need my annual exam anyway and she can do that and do whatever other tests she needs to do as well.  And I got my blood taken for colesterol and blood gucose taken for free at the health fair yesterday and she said to bring those results as well.

Great news, Missy.  And talk with Italybound also, about adrenal fatigue.  She has vigorously been looking into that issue.
