  • I'm obviously not going through it yet, but I do know from hearing about it from all the women in my family that you can expect hot flashes, sweating, mood swings, etc. Some people deal with it better than others. If you already have a short fuse, the mood swings could literally make you insane. My mom is practically bipolar since she started menopause. My aunt, on the other hand, deals with it very well. There are herbs and vitamins that are supposed to help keep you balanced, but a lot of them can interfere with prescription medications you may be on. Talk to your doctor or search for some menopause information on webmd about what kinds of things you can do to prepare. Good luck!
