    Best Menopause Blogs of 2015

    Menopause means more than just the permanent loss of your period. It also means a dramatic decrease of estrogen and progesterone, two hormones that affect your body in many ways. This is why menopausal women experience night sweats and mood swings. You also may experience weight gain and find it increasingly difficult to manage your figure. It’s no wonder menopause is often referred to as “the change.”
