Menopause has a PR problem. It’s talked about it in whispers, if at all, and often comes to those going through it with a feeling of sadness, embarrassment or shame. But it shouldn’t be this way. Menopause is a natural part of life for all women, and even has some benefits, like never having to buy tampons again. The stigma around menopause means that you may go through it without adequate medical or psychological support. Finding the right help and information will enable you to better manage the physical and emotional ups and downs of menopause.
