I saw Suzanne Sommers talking about bioidentical hormones. She looks great! I don't know anyone who takes hormones (except birth control pills). What do you know? Have any experience with hormones?

I just turned 40 and am wondering what hormonal changes I should expect. Right now, I'm on Yasmin birth control pills. I remember a co-worker (in her 50s) mentioning that she took birth control pills to help with menopause. I don't work there any more, so can't ask her.

Please share what you know.
