Some women see menopause as a gravestone etched with the word “youth.” Socially, the changes within the body like hot flashes, fatigue and vaginal dryness are identified with getting old but it really shouldn’t be that way. On average, women start going through menopause around the age of 50. If people are living to be nearly 100 nowadays, then women going through menopause are only at the half-way point. In reality, menopause is more of a milestone than a gravestone.
It’s time for us to change the way we look at menopause. If society can break through the stigmas, we can help bring meaningful life to countless women going through menopause.
