Menopause is a completely normal and natural state of life to reach, but we don't like to talk about it. That's probably because women are so often tarred with the 'crazy hormone lady' brush. You've probably heard someone say 'don't mind her, she's on the blob', 'Or jeez, early menopause?' Our hormones often get the blame for our actions, which makes many women reluctant to discuss the changes they are experiencing for fear of being branded irrational and out of control.
At What Age Will Menopause Strike?
It's commonly believed that menopause affects women in their 50s, but actually the symptoms can kick in much earlier. You don't just get the menopause on your 50th as some sort of crap gift. The average age is 52, but you can be in your 30s or 60s when it appears. Every woman is different.
