I'm smack in the middle of this series and I'm learning so much. Why aren't we better prepared for menopause? 

I'm post menopause for a little over a year now, and all I really knew about menopause this whole time is that you get hot flashes and night sweats. But I'm learning so much more. So I want to share in case it helps you, too!

My good half is dealing with it now.  Or perhaps I'm dealing with her dealing with it.

Re. hot flashes (or trying to get pregnant, regulating periods, dealing with premenstrual nastiness, or coping with a bazillion other "female troubles"): trust me: Lydia Pinkham pills -- been around since 1875 -- are the thing to get. Read the reviews:

Lady, thou art but a babe in the woods! Post-meno a year? I got off that train wreck 12 years ago! It’s been the best thing ever to be past all of that. (My cycles were madness-and-migraine-riddled torture) — but it’s only been in the last 2 years that all hot flashes finally ceased. Yes, they go on for an additional decade (though thankfully become steadily less intense). Maybe your video lady talked about that; I haven’t watched it yet. The one residual hardship I suffer is always being hot & feeling sick in hot weather. Actually that has improved slightly during the past two Summers, but it’s still pretty miserable. My clients’ homes are always like airtight saunas — it’s truly something to offer up! I hope it’s burning off some of my Purgatory time!
I have no symptoms except hot flashes. I do not take estrogen, progesterone (nothing wrong with that) but I guess all my life I was Uber feminine it counters that. I also had very heavy flow during that time of the month.

PS not to be judgemental but that lady looks like a nut.

I understand, this is such a huge change. So I just want to navigate it as best I can.

She's a bit eccentric, but I like her brand of eccentricity....She likes to laugh and have fun. She's an OBGYN and a lawyer. Barbie and her husband travel around the world, moving to a different country every year. 

She's also good teacher and has put together a very comprehensive series.

Looks like it's worth looking into, and I will. Thanks, Vox!

Technically it's been two years since my last period, but my understanding is you're only post menopause after you've missed your period for 12 months...?

Yes, I remember you mentioning the migraines. Ugh, the worst!

She hasn't mentioned the hot flashes ceasing yet. I still get them and night sweats. I guess everyone is different.

Yes, I get that, too! I think old people are often cold...could be the blood thinners.
