Menopause is no joke. And while medical advice and guidance is important, connecting with someone who knows exactly what you’re experiencing can be just what you need. In searching for the best menopause blogs of the year, we found bloggers who are sharing it all. We hope you’ll find their content informative, empowering, and a reminder that nothing — not even menopause — lasts forever.
Anyone looking for wisdom on weathering “the change” will find it here. For Lynette Sheppard, menopause was entirely disruptive.
