Pregnancy vs. Menopause: What You Said

Thursday, November, 6, 2014 < Back to Blog Posts

One of the most rewarding things about our Remifemin® Facebook® page is getting to hear your thoughts…to create a community of women who are all “walking a mile in the same shoes.” Earlier this year we asked: which is worse--pregnancy or menopause? We got a big response and the answer was overwhelmingly in favor of the fact that menopause is much worse. Most ladies acknowledged that with pregnancy it lasts only 9 months at a time and you have something to look forward to…that sweet baby!
As a first-time Grandma-to-be, with my daughter expecting in December, I’m being reminded of how difficult pregnancy can be. At that stage of life, you don’t really want to know what lies ahead after your kids are mostly raised…that menopause is on the horizon, and that life doesn’t get easier when it comes to your hormones. But, that’s probably part of the problem. As women, we get a lot of information about pregnancy and parenting, our doctors are with us every step of the way. When it comes to menopause, we often enter the whole era quite naïve…chuckling over hot flash jokes, and totally unaware of how difficult and just downright long this time of life takes. It’s very hard to fathom that after all we have lived through, there’s something more that doesn’t make a lot of sense to any of us!
Hopefully our knowledge base about menopause in general is changing. Where
“the change” used to be a taboo subject, even 10 years ago, we are now talking about it. Commercials talk frankly about issues of women over 40, all kinds of secrets that used to be brought up only in private coffee klatches. The more we know about menopause, the better we will enter the phase with the kind of knowledge that will empower us to make the right kind of decisions we each need. Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to menopause!
I did my homework and I landed on Remifemin® menopause relief.* It’s a unique herbal extract—not a synthetic dietary supplement. I encourage you to do your homework too. Look for the products that have been around and have a proven history. The fact that Remifemin has been around for nearly 60 years, says a lot. Explore and read the “About Remifemin” section. You should know what you are putting into your body. Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor about Remifemin.
People tell me that being a Grandma is the best…and someone once said that if you knew how good it was, you would have done it first! I look forward to that new grandbaby, and I also look forward to a world where when my daughter reaches the age of menopause, she begins her journey armed with knowledge and a stellar product like Remifemin. But, I think I’ll let her get on with motherhood before we have that conversation!
