[AlternativeAnswers] new here questions about herbs for perimenopause

 

I am a 43 yo woman who is currently experiencing perimenopause. I have seen a regular Dr. and was given a clean bill of health. But I have been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. Currently I am taking floradix for that and blackstrap molasses.
My GYN was pushing the Mirena IUD for me. Or a D+C/uterine ablation. Which none of those are on option for me. I do not want any artificial hormones or surgeries unless it is life or death.
Because I am now spotting 4-5 days prior to my periods, and get my period for 5-6 days, I really only have about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks in between before I start spotting again.
And I also get really bad ctamping when I spot.
I would like to get some information on natural ways to regulate my hormones. I am pretty sure my progesterone drops rapidy which is why I spot for days prior to my periods.
I have looked into Natural Progesterone, but I am not sure I would like to go that route yet.

How about Red Rasberry Leaf pills? Or Wild Yam Root pills? Can you use both of these together?

I take prescription meds for now, for high blood pressure, IBS and depression. So I need to make sure nothing interacts.

I also take vitamins. A multi-vitamin, Vitamin C, D, B12, Garlic, and Omega 3-6-9.

I would love to get advice on some medicinal herbs or holistic methods for my menstrual problems.

Thank you

Cindy
