Let’s talk about Menopause.
Menopause is not a disease or a disorder, but a natural and normal part of aging.
Despite the increased access to information there still remains a lot of stigma and misinformation associated with menopause. This period in a woman’s life is often poorly portrayed in the media, and reinforces stereotypes and fear for many women.
The best thing a woman can do during this time is educate herself on the facts and know that she is not in this alone.
Menopause is different for everyone and can last a long time. The basis of menopause is when our hormones become imbalanced. Like a finely tuned machine, when some of the settings are out of whack we can experience some symptoms of menopause.
Some are blatantly obvious, but other medical changes occur that impact our estrogen, ovaries, testosterone and progesterone. This can often result in mood swings changes in libido and irregular or cessation of periods.
