Do you ever feel like you’re the only one going through menopause? The following stories are from Red Hot Mamas website readers and members. Scroll through these “menopause tales” and see how other women view and manage their bodies as they experience the change.
After not sleeping for at least a year, taking sleeping pills and down right being exhausted at least 5 days a week, my doctor suggested I use the Estrogen patch. I was already on the pill, but being 51 and not needing birth control I did not always remember to take it. I had been using it for my estrogen needs. My Dr. 1st had my blood check to see if I had started menopause. I thought this symptom was all part of menopause and could not believe that I was not menopausal. Putting me on the patch worked immediately. I slept like a baby the 1st week. It's been almost 6 months now and I feel like a new woman. So ask your Dr. if these are symptoms you are having.
