Because menopause is still very much taboo women are caught by surprise when they start perimenopause (the years leading up to menopause).
In perimenopause hormones fluctuate and women feel many changes – physical, cognitive and emotional.
Memory lapses, anger, crying spells, difficulty sleeping, hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, body shape change, aches and pains, are common.
Most women are unprepared for this change. The majority feels very alone on this journey.
Millions of people (everyone born with ovaries) are going through perimenopause as you read this.
Primary care physicians aren’t trained about menopause.
Women have to find answers on their own.
