Last time we tried talking about menopause, technology wasn’t on our side; but we felt that it is very important for us to learn early symptoms of menopause and what to do about it. Our community members are in different stages of their lives.  We really hope that the information from our guest will give you something to think about.

We don’t usually talk about menopause with our friends, and that is why many of us get very confused or frustrated when suddenly facing pre-menopausal symptoms. You’d be surprised to learn that some women experience pre-menopausal symptoms as early as 35. That’s right, you might have kids in diapers and have to deal with pre-menopausal issues. This week’s Mamavation TV show is about education and learning what we need to know now before menopause knocks on our doors.
