I feel so odd asking. Did anyone decide to not vaccinate a healthy two year old? I am struggling giving it to him for some reason. And I believe in vaccines…
I am one of 2 Sr. MA within my department. We were instructed to conduct JCHO Readiness Inspections at all locations. Now both me and this other Sr. MA are black women. The MA that we decided to speak with first was a white woman. While we were going over some things that she needed to brush up on, this Medical Assistant said "I feel like I'm being attacked." I closed my laptop and walked out the office. Now I am being targeted as if I've done something wrong. What do I do?

Any food recommendations? I hear varying opinions of what’s bests so I’d love to hear what worked directly for you.
Imagine going up to someone at a bar and asking if they wanna go out with you. and then when they say "sure," you say, "great. tell me why I should take you out and maybe we'll go get drinks. look forward to considering it!"
That's recruiters. So effing sick of it.
Is there generally a penalty if you give your resignation while you’re out on short term disability or FMLA? My employee handbook doesn’t say anything and HR won’t give me any info. I don’t want to get an unexpected letter telling me I owe back healthcare or salary costs because I quit before my leave claim was officially over.

I might be shifting into a new career path, working in-house for a tech brand. What is a realistic salary expectation for a Director of Communications? This particular company is on the younger side (was a start-up just five years ago), so I’m not sure what amount is reasonable to ask for. I have 10 years of experience and work in LA, FYI.

I’m in the process of building an app to help women like myself deal with & monitor their peri/menopause symptoms. Would you be willing to take my survey? https://sprw.io/stt-67105290eb
Welcome to the menopause bowl! This is a supportive place to discuss all facets of menopause as well as HRT. Whether you are in the pre / post or in-between stages, this is the right place for you!
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?
This is so accurate today
My belly keeps getting flabbier during menopause. Mainly uncomfortable bloating. Has anyone found any foods or supplements that have helped??
I finally broke down and went back on HRT last week. I have been taking gabapentin for a nerve injury which I’ve learned helps hot flashes. I can’t tell a significant difference yet aside from maybe getting a little better sleep. I saw a new doctor (male) to get my prescription refilled and he seems to have a different philosophy than my last doctor (female). He wants me to be on HRT until 51, but after that he doesn’t recommend it. I hope by that age I’ll be off the gabapentin…
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!!
Has anyone here experienced new or worsening anxiety as a result of hormonal changes? I’m having more general anxiety, but also terrible rebound anxiety from alcohol as I get older.

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?
Does menopause cause eczema? I think this is what it is as I’ve never had it? But red blotches on my legs is the culprit.
Anyone have thoughts on the at home hormone tests you can buy online? I have a high deductible and a lot of those tests are cheaper than my out of pocket cost through insurance.
Question about health insurance. Since some of us are at the age of more preventives, such as colonoscopies and mammograms, are PPO plans the best option? Does anyone have an HSA? Do you recommend it? Yes or no? Thanks!!
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.
Let us know how it goes!
I slept through the night with no hot flashes but I realize I probably still have HRT in my system. The plus on this product is 1 pill a day and they are easy to take. I don’t know about everyone else but I have issues taking horse pills!
Unfortunately I had to go back on my HRT. The hot flashes were unbearable to the point I was averaging 3 hours of sleep per night. For now I’m taking the estradiol twice daily but may try to decrease as time goes on.
Following. The hot flashes just started for me a couple of months ago, they keep me up all night. Then I spend all my time on this app.
