The word says it - keep away from men - they're the problem!!

Then your 'hot flushes' merely become a duvet that's too big a tog!!!

Get everyone else to leave home and let us get on with it. They are always wrong anyway!!

I read that using soya products helped.......I was lucky, didn't have all the bad stuff.......it all happened to my Sis instead....

Mine started at about 46 - still getting odd flushes at 55. Still a crabby bag according to OH but that may be something to do wth living with him!!

It's never easy

evening primrose tablets helped - also suffered badly from insomnia - used to lie awake planning the slowest and most painful death for OH who was snoring loudly!!

Sparrow.

Have to agree with you about the movie bit. Used to feel embarrased just thinking about my reactions to stupid things.

Now I think "what the heck" - he got away with "murder" before my menopause. lol.

Poor s*d is having to put up with me and my 14 year old daughter. Shame

I spent a couple of summers when I was about 47 wearing black - gross sweating!!!
Since then, apart from no periods - very little. I cry at sad bits in films/tv shows etc, but just think of it as giving my eyes a good clear out!!!
Oh and I play up the memory thing LOL

If it was not for HRT I would kill myself or commit murder...

If fact it is time I went to see my Doctor to get stronger tabs as I have been on the same ones for the last six years.

Fortunately, our doctor is a woman and is older then me who also had a lousy time with menopause.

Lol about the doctor.

Mines a MAN.

The same one who asked me to compare on a scale of 1 to 10 how earache compared with child birth. As if he would know!!

Actually I do have one problem with the menopause - my line manager - about the same age as me!! She's had a humour lobotomy (not necessarily to do with the menopause) but the stupid C*w can't see why paying invoices isn't the 'be all and end all' of my life!!!!

I have a life outside work and like to play!!!!

This is, apparently, an 'unseemly' desire for someone my (our) age!!!
D'oh, she should get a life!!!

Reading this thread (thanks for putting it up!), I've picked up a few tips myself. Just over 2 weeks ago, I had a hysterectomy - ovaries, too - so am expecting something or other in a few weeks (hah! Poor choice of words there, eh, lol).
Any more tips?

well the menopause never bothered me and I never bothered it!! for which I am ever grateful.

One small point though, and a little on the delicate side, a side effect of the menopause made me go to my GP who prescribed HRT which was perfect - however, since my lovely husband passed away I no longer have a need for it. Hope that explains the problem!!

Exercise and healthy food, I take Ymea too,I feel great:-)

I really dont want to go down the H.R.T path if I can help it, but if I feel I need it I would go for it,so far so good.
watch this space;-))
