Menopause is perhaps one of the most delicately discussed phenomena in women’s health.
It is very common for women to have feelings of apprehension or shame regarding this life-altering milestone. Menopause is simply the natural evidence of the maturing feminine body, something that has been treated as an unnecessary taboo in our culture. It’s not a secret that growing older holds a lot of social and psychological weight for women. Thankfully, due to the number of emerging female voices and influences, the collective attitude about these deeply personal changes are beginning to become more positive and empowering.
