Is Menopause the Final Frontier of Women’s Health?
"Like death and taxes, menopause is an inevitability for women. But despite the fact that there are more than 60 million women aged 50 and above in the United States (the average onset of menopause is 51), the marketplace for providing us with both the tools and the knowledge to navigate this universal health stage is shockingly bare, which likely contributed to my own denial. If you don’t know what menopause looks and feels like, you’re unlikely to recognize it when it comes for you. Millennials have brought a welcomed new openness to formerly secretive, female-centric topics such as periods, acne, and even pregnancy—a term that was once censored on television. So why is the M-word still spoken about in whispers?"
