Menopause can bring about big changes in a woman’s life. It typically begins after the age of 45, and can involve hot flashes and night sweats, trouble sleeping, vaginal dryness, facial hair growth, mood swings, and more.
About 6,000 women in the United States reach menopause every day. For many, menopause hits around the time when many factors in their lives are also changing — such as when children start leaving the nest, or during shifts in their career.
Hopefully these blogs give you a supportive place to turn to when you want to connect with others to get answers and advice.
