You have noticed the recent long read article in the Guardian about that significant period in a woman's life: the menopause.
The article garnered a great deal of comment, as it talked in some detail about the limitations of our society's / health system's current management of the menopause, and the author's own experience of the process.
We were very interested in the large range of experiences that women shared about their own menopausal period - from those who suffered greatly to those whose experience was much less distressing.
This kind of discussion can be really helpful as it opens up the topic to those who are in the throes of it all, or even have it to come. We'd like to invite you to share your own experiences, opinions and tips of how you coped, or even what your thoughts are if you haven't yet got to this point of your life.
Thanks so much for sharing! If you haven't seen the original article and would like to read it first, you can find it here: www.theguardian.com/society/2015/dec/15/what-science-doesnt-know-about-the-menopause-what-its-for-how-to-treat-it
