âEach woman faces many challenges when she reaches this stage of life and many women donât know where to go to learn about the changes their bodies are experiencing and the available resources to help them,â says Dr. Allmen. âMenopause affects each woman differently. This really highlights the importance of speaking with a knowledgeable healthcare provider to learn how to manage specific symptoms safely and effectively, which may include FDA approved prescription medication.â
A great information source, [http://www.CopewithMenopause.com], offers helpful information for women coping with menopause.
