I am 50 years old. Last year started having hot flashes and night sweats. Started taking estra/noreth 2 months ago. Now 3 weeks late for period ( tubal 12 years ago, so no fear of pregnancy). Can this medicine stop periods? If so, will they start back when I go off the meds.

This is for my mom. She is 50. She is having hot flashes . Once she starts to sweat she feels pins and needles over her entire body, enough to cause a great deal of pain. Her doctor diagnosed her with Giardia , and Fibromyalgia . And gave her estrogen pills, 1mg told her she had to wait two days before taking them. The hot flashes are a concern due to the amount of pain it puts her in. Any help or a direction to start with would be greatly appreciated.

I am a 50 year old white male and I am noticing that I am having a warm to hot scrotum 24 hours a day, all the time. I am starting to get very concern. This has been going on for months. What is causing this and should I be concerned. I just had my blood test done and nothing showed abnormal. Thank you, Mark

I am 50 years old, and female. Over the past year I have lost 7 pounds, which took me from 97 to 90 pounds. My face is broke out with acne like bumps on nose and cheeks. My eyes and lids are red and sometimes have discharge. My back hands and feet hurt worse than usual. I feel like I m falling apart. I have also been experiencing what I think are hot flashes. I took an iron test and had low iron, but after supplements it went back to normal. But I noticed over the course of 6 months and 3 different iron tests ( CBC ). My wbc count rose on eveery test but remained in the normal range.
