Great post. And a nice view into menopause -- both the ups and the downs. But I bet I'm not the only woman out there who would say that she'd be happy to go back to the periods and the need for birth control just to be balanced again hormonally.

When menopause begins, the changing hormones -- and ultimate lack of estrogen -- affects everything in your body and mind, for many of us. The symptoms you listed are just the beginning. Physically and mentally, there is a real sense of loss for the person we once were. It's what makes hormone replacement therapy such a controversial subject -- there's relief, but at what cost?

Thanks for making me think.
