How tall are you? What kind of build?
You may already be at your ideal weight, you know.
Trying to live underweight will result in tiredness, hair loss, etc, from simple malnourishment.
Menopause does add pounds. Its natural.
I did not bother with any of those creams, I allowed menopause to take place unhindered. I had violent hot flushes and sleepless nights, and I still do occasionally, even though I am now almost 60.

Progesterone is often touted as desirable for perimenopausal women, but its estrogen we lose as we age. Estrogen signals youth and fertility, exhibits slenderness and vigour. Progesterone - well, no pregnant woman ever lost weight. It makes us want to hibernate, stay home, stay safe, gain weight.
