When I started to experience menopause and hot flashes at a rare age of 23 years of age, as I have said many times before I didn’t have a clue as to what was going on and I didn’t really know where to go for help. It wasn’t until I started to reach out to speaking to older women and then that lead me from one point to another. Until finally, I was introduced to a licensed pharmacist who was very knowledgeable about my condition and the symptoms I was having related to menopause and hot flashes.
You can use the resources that are right in front of you to better understand and know more about your menopause and hot flashes with the symptoms that come along with it. Just by doing some simple and common forms of research. Talk to an older woman who has experienced it, your medical professional, attend a women’s support group, conduct some internet research, and as I did talk to a pharmacist.
Here are a list of helpful resources to use:
- National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine-http://nccam.nih,gov/health/menopauseandcam
- National Institutes of Health-Menopausal Hormone Therapy Information-http://www.nih.gov/PHTindex.htm
