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.

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the group. Hope you are looking forward to the weekend. Right now the worst of the symptoms are hot flashes, night sweats, memory fogginess and not handling pressure as well as I used to. I was surprised to learn there are so many symptoms and yet glad that it meant there was a reason I felt this way
