Last spring at the age of 40, I underwent a hysterectomy. I am currently taking 1.25 mg of Premarin® each day. I am doing well, but have real concerns regarding the production of this drug. I would like to investigate a more natural approach to hormone replacement. Do you know if there have been studies recommending black cohosh for women who have had hysterectomies?
Enzymatic Therapy® is happy to provide information about how our nutritional supplements and natural medicines can work to support certain organs, system, functions, and overall good health. The law prohibits us from diagnosing, treating, or making recommendations regarding the treatment of illness.

Premarin® a prescription drug, is a conjugated estrogen. Indications for use include symptoms associated with menopause.1
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the use of estrogen or estrogen/progesterone combinations after situations such as menopause or a hysterectomy. Estrogen used alone is associated with thickening of the lining of the uterus and an increased risk for endometrial cancer. Progesterone is used in combination with estrogen to minimize this risk by keeping the uterine lining from thickening.2
A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus while the ovaries remain.3 An ovariectomy is the removal of the ovaries while the uterus remains. As long as the ovaries remain, estrogen can still be produced.4 However, many people use the term "complete hysterectomy" as an all-inclusive term identifying the removal of the uterus and ovaries.
Black Cohosh and Woman's Choice® AM/PM Menopause Formula™ are natural herbal supplements for women in all stages of menopause, including surgically induced menopause following a complete hysterectomy. The key ingredient in both products is standardized black cohosh extract. Studies have shown that black cohosh, Cimicifuga racemosa, supports the health of women experiencing various stages of menopause.5-14 Black Cohosh and Woman's Choice® AM/PM Menopause Formula™ do not contain estrogen and are therefore hormone-free. Various constituents of black cohosh appear to bind to estrogen receptors without producing estrogen-like effects or changing hormone levels in the body.5,6 However, a black cohosh product should not be mistaken as hormone replacement, and the two are not interchangeable.
A unique feature of Woman's Choice® AM/PM Menopause Formula™ is that there are two separate formulas in one box. Different ingredients are included to address either daytime or nighttime symptoms. In addition to black cohosh in both the morning and evening tablets, this product contains ginseng and green tea in the morning dose and L-theanine, valerian and hops in the evening dose. These other ingredients are intended to address menopausal complaints of sleeplessness and lack of energy.
We recommend that your concerns with prescription hormone replacement therapy and your desire to explore herbal supplements be discussed with your licensed healthcare practitioner.

Will this make me feel too groggy to get up in the morning?
The herbal blend of valerian, lemon balm and hops help you fall asleep naturally, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed.† These herbs are included because they work with your body to help you relax, but with no morning grogginess.†
Can I take Remifemin® Good Night with my other sleep supporting supplements?
Most supplemental sleep support contains hops and valerian, as does Remifemin® Good Night. Rather than doubling up on those ingredients, it’s probably best to stick with one or the other. You can always return to using your other sleep-supporting supplement once you feel your menopause symptoms have abated.
Is Remifemin® Good Night habit forming?
No, there are no known addictive effects to the ingredients in Remifemin® Good Night.
Can I take Remifemin® Good Night with my prescription sleep medications? Are there any contraindications?
Remifemin® Good Night does not treat, prevent, or mitigate disease (namely insomnia) and should be used carefully with medications which have a sedative effect (barbiturates, sedatives, anti-depressants, other sleep promoting drugs and/or other herbal sedatives).
As with any dietary supplement, if you are taking any prescription drugs and/or any other over-the-counter product, please check with your doctor or pharmacist first before using Remifemin® Good Night. Your doctor or pharmacist is the best person to advise you based on your medical history and present state of health.
Also, be aware Remifemin® Good Night may impair your ability to drive or operate heavy machinery. Due the added sedative effect, avoid using Remifemin® Good Night with alcohol.
How soon will I notice results?
Use Remifemin® Good Night for at least 8 weeks before deciding whether or not it works for you.
Remember, Remifemin® Good Night is a natural supplement. It may take time to catch up to your body’s natural cycles. You may notice improvements relatively quickly, but for some, it can take up to 12 weeks to experience the full benefits.†
Should I take Remifemin® Good Night with food or on an empty stomach?
It’s up to you—whether you take Remifemin® Good Night with or without food is matter of personal preference and convenience. It can be taken before, with, or between meals and won’t impact the effectiveness of the product.
