Menopause Support Group

Menopause is the physiological cessation of menstrual cycles associated with advancing age. It normally occurs in women between the ages of 45 and 55, when the body begins to slow and stop the production of eggs, estrogen and progesterone production decreases, and menstruation diminishes, eventually stopping altogether.

    Happy Monday,Hope everyone out there is doing okay today and that the menopausal symptoms are not overwhelming you.  I personally have so little patience for this stage of life, it doesn't seem fair to have to go through all of these changes.  Oh well, I just wish I didn't have to work so hard to keep my weight down.

    Hello, My name is Sara,  I am new to this but I needed a place where I could be heard by others who were dealing with the same issues.  I am young, 39, but my mom was this age when she started hormonal issues associated with Pre-menopause.  I feel like I am losing my mind and it is hard for others to understand because I seem fine on the outside.  I have always had bad PMS but it went away...

    Happy Saturday!  I am new to this group (any group for that matter) and I am new to this "journey" as well.  I finally gave up and went to my family doctor after not being able to concentrate, sleep, or do much more than get thru my job during the day.  It was like a "chicken or egg" game.  Was the memory loss, exhaustion, high blood pressure, inability to focus due to menopause?  Anxiety?...

    Hello everyone, i read a post from one of the supporters that they have ringing of the ear ( tinnus). I too have ringing in my right ear, it started a few years ago, I went to the ENT and they didn't find anything. I'm wondering if it's a symptom of menopause? If you have any suggestions on how to deal with this PLEASE let me know. I've been sleeping with earphones to drown it the ringing.
