  • Why are there so many symptoms related to menopause?
  • What are some common symptoms?
  • Why do some women breeze through menopause and others do anything but?
  • What is perimenopause?
  • What are some common questions women ask about menopause?
  • What are some alternatives to hormone therapy?
  • How can women nurture themselves?
