Getting Used to the New

Remember the day you got your first period? It was closely followed by the realization that you'd be dealing with about 40 years of possible cramps, bloating, and chocolate cravings every month. It took some adjusting. But eventually getting your period became a part of your life's routine. The same can be said of menopause. The time when your period stops for good requires an adjustment of your psyche and your body. But it's also a time you can be ready for if you know a bit more about what to expect. If you can make it through puberty, you can make it through menopause!
