For those of you who are just beginning this wonderful process, here we can narrow down the symptoms and ask questions like "am I starting perimenopause?"

a letter from one of my readers...

Hi Dee,

I wrote you awhile back to see if you had ideas for sleepwear that helped with night sweats. I wanted to let you know I stopped taking the low dose birth control pills I was using to control the menopause symptoms. I stopped having insomnia, the migraines stopped, the low back pain went away and the night sweats stopped along with the hot flashes. I have not had a period since I stopped either (2/28 was last date of menses). I thought this might help someone else to know. Birth control pills cause periods to occur. I guess I was taking something I no longer needed, I am feeling a lot better and more like myself.

I did buy some lingerie from Cool Sets and it helped a lot.

Thanks so much.

Deb B.
