Wow! It's about time!
on July 8, 2006
It's about time someone stood up for the rights of women! Beth Rosenshein acknowledges the suffering of so many women and responds with rational, scientific solutions. Women's suffering through menopause is completely unnecessary and unhealthy. It it now time for the medical community to train their doctors to offer real replacment as they would for any other organ failures.
I have lived with menopause for 30 years. I don't want my daughters or granddaughters to suffer in their personal relationships or careers the way I did. It is a terrible way to live with hot flashes and loss of sexual function. My husband stayed with me but it wasn't easy. How many men leave becasue they feel rejected? Menopause is not the slowing down of the ovaries, it is their failure. Both men and women feel this loss. I don't believe women should embrace menopause, what is their to embrace? Where is the wisdom in embracing this?
