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.

    i don't even know how to start without starting to cry. I feel so weak and pathetic on a daily basis, I'm glad I found this site to feel safe and understood. I am 49 and have been in menopause for 2 years now, but have felt tired and horrible for the past 7 years. I am so glad I have my kids to motivate me, but when they're not around I cry just because I'm left in my own head. I'm a stay at home...

    Has anyone had problems with bacterial vaginosis? I am 46 and started perimenopause 4 years ago. I have had all the anxiety, depression, bouts of crying, sagging skin, slow metabolism, fatigue, hot flashes, etc. This one is the next battle, I guess. I hadn't done anything new. I was using a new shower gel for about a month so I don't think that's what it is, but I stopped using it none the...

    Something more must be wrong...

    Do any of you feel this way? That it can't possibly just be menopause making you feel this bad? Everything that used to make me feel better no longer works. Not food, exercise, anything. I get no relief.It's hard to believe there isn't something more wrong with me.

The answer that my mind keeps arriving at is...

    Hi Everyone, I am new to the group. I don't have a mother figure in my life to ask questions when I have them. So I am hoping through this group and I can gain some answers and understanding what is going on with me during menopause. My maw passed in 2010 and my only living grandma has dementia so she isn't much help. Looking forward to chatting with y'all

    Perimenopause and internal tremors

    After spending the last six months of my life thinking I was dying of some mysterious disease I learned that the " internal" tremors I was feeling were actually due to estrogen deficiencyand simply part of my perimenopause. In Jan 2009 I began to suffer severe heartburn, panic attacks, insomia, sweats etc. One day I thought I was having a heart attack and began a long journey of trying to figure...
