Do people divorce more during perimenopause?

Posted | 0 comments

It seems like all around me people are getting divorced or separated. It occurred to me that this seems to happen a lot for couples in the 38 to 50 age range. Perimenopause also takes place during that time. Hmm… Could there be a correlation? Do our hormones ruin our chances of a good relationship? Something I have been toying with is the idea that perimenopause changes the patience/tolerence level in women. In my twenties and early thirties, many things didn’t bother me....

Man-o-pause is out there people – and it aint pretty!

ABC’s Good Morning Amersica did an article on “manopause” recently.

What do you do when you can’t get past your GP to a specialist?

Posted | 0 comments

So I had my visit to my GP last week… it’s taken me a week to cool down enough to blog about it with somewhat less emotionally… A new doctor was there subbing for my usual one who is on mat leave. So I thought, “great! a new guy! maybe I’ll get somewhere”. I riffled off my perimenopausal symptoms and he immediately agreed that I was bang on the money in determining that I indeed am in perimenopause. Great. At least some acknowledgment....
