For years, menopause has been the subject of rumor and myth. At one time, it was believed that menopause was a disease. It was also thought that menopausal women were constantly depressed and just stopped having sex. They were treated as if their lives had ended.
Thankfully, attitudes towards menopause have changed for the better. Menopause is seen as a perfectly natural part of life, and it is an easy transition for some and a more difficult one for others.
Through a new openness to talk about menopause, there's more help available to women who are having difficulty coping with this time in their lives.
