To be a woman is to have made peace with one fact: your body changes minute by minute, day by day. One week your hormones might send you on a bender of angst and worry, the next week, you’re overflowing with joy and are the most positive person in the room.
That mood pendulum is, of course caused by the hormones in charge of fertility–estrogen and progesterone. In addition to side effects that can throw one’s mental health off-balance, there is debilitating pain that many women with endometriosis suffer.
It can all be very frustrating, but then one day, seemingly out of the blue and most likely in your 50’s, your body decides its all over and sends you on a different kind of rollercoaster: menopause!
