So you may wonder why I would be talking about menopause. You may even say to yourself “She is too young”. Well let me tell ya, last year I had to have a hysterectomy. So I now get to experience menopause early. Aren’t I just so lucky? No?! I don’t think so either but there is a way to make this journey easier. Poise has now come out with some amazing products to combat the side affects of menopause.
Poise has come out with the Poise Feminine Wellness products! They cover everything from Hygiene to Intimacy. When I saw the commercial for these I was sooo excited. I was even more excited when I was asked to join the 2nd talk discussion. I think it is important that as women we talk about this. It’s going to happen to each and every one of us whether we want it to or not so we might as well talk about it.
First off, You are considered to be in menopause when you have not had a period for at least 12 months. It usually occurs around the age of 45 but it can come sooner depending on family history, medical treatments or like in my case had a hysterectomy. The symptoms associated with menopause are mood swings, hot flushes, and loss of sex drive. Oh the joys of being a women.
With the new Poise products you can address these symptoms whenever and where ever the need strikes. One of the products I love is the Poise Roll-On Cooling Gel.
Seriously this stuff is amazing. It is non greasy, non sticky and smells so light! It also fits great in your purse. I love that fact that Poise put a lot of thought into their products for women. Not only are they extremely portable but they are also glycerin and paraben free and ph balanced. You can really tell that a lot of thought went into making these products for women. You can check out my Google + story about All of the Poise products here. Availability may also vary like it did in my case.
Since both my best friend Donna and I had such a long week we decided to take our 2nd talk about menopause on the road and go to the spa. I couldn’t think of a better way to relax and chat.
We realized during our conversation that neither of our mothers talked with us about menopause. Sure there was a comment here and there about having “hot flashes” but that was about it. Even now women we know are going through it too but nobody talks about it. We both decided that we didn’t want it to be that way for our daughters. They should know about ALL the changes that happen to their body through out their life. I think it is important to keep those lines of communication open with our daughters and other women. Menopause is going to happen to each and everyone one of us women but thankfully with Poise, now we have ways to deal with it.
