Do you typically need more experience before going in house? Would be great to hear about various experiences from those that have made the transition. Thanks!

Just got married and am going to change my last name legally, and practice under the new name as well. I’m wondering what the pros and cons (or other reasoning) are of changing your middle name to your maiden name. Interested to hear any thoughts. Also, do you keep your old middle name and have 2, or get rid of the old middle name all together?


Additional Posts in Menopause Bowl

Has anyone ever thought of liposuction? I have no idea how much it costs but I feel ever since my hysterectomy in 2017 I can’t get rid of this pouch around my mid-section. It is not helping my esteem levels lately!!

Once we get a few more members I had the following ideas for speakers:
1. OBGYN specializing in menopause/HRT from Duke University
2. Nutrition Counselor
3. Anxiety Coach
Does anyone have other ideas? Please let me know!!


I run 3x per week and started having left knee pain. Got an X-ray and it turns out I have mild arthritis in both knees. Has anyone else been diagnosed? What are your remedies? I got an inflammatory and hope it provides some relief!


I’m curious how long people were in the peri menopause phase? I’ve read it’s an average of 4 years but I’m curious what people’s experiences are. I believe I am late stage peri menopausal and my periods have been very irregular for the past 9 months ranging 13-60 days between periods. If anyone has any studies you could point me to, I’d love to see those as well! I’m 40 and my mom entered menopause at 41.


I had to get a hysterectomy at age 39 due to endometriosis (stage 4). I’m 42 now & greatly suffering from menopause. One doctor said that going on hormone therapy greatly increases my risk for endometriosis to return and become cancerous however another doctor told me this isn’t an exact science. I’m getting conflicting answers to whether or not I should do hormone therapy and it seems like I can’t get a straight answer to this question. Does anyone know anything about this?


I’ve been really depressed. I mean this is a low point I haven’t experienced in awhile. My job is horrible, I’m getting heavy, so many factors...when can this be blamed on menopause or just life in general??


My spouse is in better shape and is healthier than me. Can anyone relate? Does this bother anyone? I’ve tried so hard to look better but my emotional toll is working overtime. I weigh more than my husband by 10 lbs.


Okay — diets & weight loss. What have you seen that actually works? I exercise almost daily but realize my portions and food intake aren’t perfect. I do not want to track cals or macros as that caused me to have an eating disorder. I have an OCD personality.

Hi Ladies, just found this group. I'm 59 and post menopausal. Read through some of the threads and can relate to all. Glad to know I'm not alone.


Has any of you ladies tried natural supplements to help with various things? I'm curious about them.

Hello Everyone!!
Happy Friday!
I wanted to let you know we are having a beginner meditation session next Tuesday Feb 9th from 8:30 - 9 PM EST.
You should see a reminder on Monday.
I’m very much looking forward to this event! If anyone else wants to volunteer to lead these mindful sessions please let me know as I’d love to make this a regular occurrence.

Just venting - In my 50 and tired of monthly periods with no end in sight. According to blood/hormone tests I’m pre/peri menopause. I hate the drier skin, hormone changes, thinning hair and weight gain (no matter how I adjust my diet and exercise the scale will not budge). Fortunately the one symptom I don’t have is hot flashes. Sigh. Does this get better at any point?


Hi ladies, I'm in my mid 40s and I think I'm entering peri. I currently have a Mirena but I should replace it again soon, but one more will put me into my 50s(!!) and I was wondering if anyone here knows that they're in peri or menopause without having periods. Is there blood work or something to check? I definitely do not want to have another child accidentally. I've got 5 more years until my youngest is in college and don't want to start over again.

This is so accurate today

Hello! I'm reaching out to a Doctor I know who is passionate about Menopause and treatments. Hopefully she can attend a live session. Does anyone else have any other speakers in mind that I could reach out to? I know there was mention of a nutritionist and / or therapy counselor.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Has anyone here had success with intermittent fasting? I feel like it’s easy to incorporate during the week since mornings are chaotic. The weekends are a different story!!


Seems like the hot flashes just started getting really frequent and I haven’t slept well for weeks. Does anyone know how long this typically lasts, and do I really need to go to a doc for meds? I just finished cancer treatments a few months ago and completely over going to the doc. I’d much prefer to try supplements first. Right now it’s black cohosh, I’ll up the dose a bit see if that works

I wanted to start a thread. What vitamins / supplements / medications are you taking for your menopause symptoms? I’m supposed to take Estradiol pills twice per day but sometimes am horrible at remembering. I should be taking D3 per my Doctor but when I ran out earlier in the year I never bought more. The same goes for my multivitamin although I’m sure I really need one! I wonder if I should just use natural remedies like Black Cohosh, but that didn't work well for me.

Ladies at what age did you decide to allow your hair be natural? As far as color, style, etc? What was your reasoning to stop dying it either on your own or having it done professionally? I think I’m slowly getting to the point of seeing how I look with grays. I’ve dyed my hair for over 20 years. When the pandemic hit I started using Overtone at home. I don’t know if it’s bad I’m caring less about my appearance.
