Generalisation ideas

  • Conversations: this is an abstract concept as it is very individual to each woman and varies a great deal over time.  Talk often in a casual manner whenever opportunities arise about changes that might be experienced during menopause.
  • Consequences:  who can you talk to about menopause?
  • Flipside: what if you are not comfortable with menopausal symptoms?
