Amazing look how fast the turtle goes after that ball LOL

We had a Peekapoo that played ball with box turtles in our yard. That's how we found out the turtles were here. She would balance them on her nose like seals in a circus balance beach ball on theirs

I'd say the Tortoise was delighted, they always look lonely to me โ˜บ

โ€œI am 43 and my period is starting to show irregularity. I guess I am nearing menopause. I want advice:

1. Is it ok and should I let it happen?
2. Are there lots of side effects and can they be delayed at this stage?
3. If yes, how can we delay approaching menopause: options?

Thanks to you and all the lovely ladies of our group.โ€œ -Anonymous

I went through the menopause at 40, thought I’d breezed it, no hot flushes or anything, felt great until I broke my ankle at 57 and was then diagnosed with osteoporosis of the spine.. look after yourself, eat well and excercise, I didn’t want to take hrt and risk breast cancer, especially with no symptoms, I don’t regret what I did, just have to be careful, you can’t hold back the tide ๐Ÿฅบ

I started with peri meno symptoms at age 41/2. I tried natural methods of controlling symptoms but eventually went on to HRT. It was the best decision for me. I'm now 51 & doing ok.. you can't hold back nature but you can manage symptoms xx

For me it took a couple of years to make it through. Hot flashes, brain fog, a bit moody. Then once on the other side thin skin, thick waist, less strength. But, my lifetime of uncontrollable MIGRAINES is finally relieved. And, oddly, I have more energy than I ever did before. It's not all bad. I would not go back!

Get ready for the ride of your life. Everyone is different, so it's difficult to recommend anything, specifically. I'm 63 and it hit me like a freight train at age 40. I've never experienced anything like it - misery for 15 years. I just learned to live with it, as best I could. And, I still have hot flashes from time to time. It was very rough for me. I hope your pathway through menopause is smooth.๐Ÿ’ž

No hot flashes. Very dry skin. Suddenly feeling like I was fainting, which interfered with my normal activities. It lasted a few years. Then total relief, as I had terrible cramps. Gradual loss of sexual impulse, which coincided with my husbands disease, so it was fine. Never did hormone therapy, as it was not recommended by my doctor because of breast bump.

It was a blessing for me after years of debilitating menstrual cramps monthly, I had no negative side affects, hot flashes now and again but nothing nearly as bad as my monthly cramps were.

Consult your OBGYN that has treated you over the years and is familiar with you, your cycle and your medical history. Everyone of us is different and so are our bodily functions. We all experience Menopause differently. Consult the professional that you are familiar with so that you are not trying to self diagnose and get a lot of different answers from a lot of different women who all have different experiences with their own cycle and with menopause.โค

Please, please make an appointment with your gynecologist. I was 47 and having night sweats and no period for 6 months. My doctor at first thought it was symptoms due to peri-menopause. Come to find out after the third visit that I was stage 3 ovarian cancer. make sure they do a CA 125 and a complete pelvic exam. Please!

I had one year of heavy periods and then they just stopped. I have hot flashes here and there but I have noticed when I get stressed I have more. No hormones and I feel fine. My MIL took hormones and it just delayed menopause, she still had to go through it. I think everyone has to decide what is right for them. I am 57, I am a pre-k teacher still energetic and going strong

Everyone is different. I had hot flashes and my sister had none. It’s nature and even with hormone replacement you will get some effects and you can’t take them forever as they can give their own complications and side effects. Let nature take its course and treat or cope with things as they come along... if they come along.

I just turned 50 and it started for me in my mid 40s. I’m not taking anything and I feel fine. I have occasional hot flashes and some of the cycles I do still have are heavier, but not unmanageable. I decided a long long time ago that I didn’t want to take hormones.

I let nature do it's thing. VERY GLADLY. I've had hot flashes and night sweats but it's not been crazy. I guess all in all I've had maybe a dozen days out of 6 years that I felt miserable

It will come with or without your permission. There are ways to make it easier, more comfortable. I continued to take a dose of hormones. But they warn you of other side effects of doing that. I was fortunate that I got through it all. My daughter had breast cancer and you can't add to the hormones that would make it worse. You will find you no longer want to snuggle against your husband, he's too hot now. You will sleep in light nighties with one leg out from under the covers. Turtle necks are out. You will find it can affect your sleep. Some days you will feel like Clint Eastwood with a "make my day " attitude. You and your friends will have new jokes.

I have to say I didnt have any symptoms at all. I know friends who suffered terribly. I would always talk to a good homeopath if I had concerns as I would take the natural route and there are lots of good natural remedies out there to use.

Let nature take it's course. Treat symptoms naturally. I took that time to think of my life as a reboot. I decided to eat better, exercise more, destress and enjoy! I'm through it and loving life. I have more energy and a healthy libido. I'm healthier and calmer. It's a win win. God bless you and good luck on your journey.

Everybody is so different. You should definitely talk to a doctor you trust. Preferably a woman doctor. I could not take estrogen because I had a lump removed years earlier. I did have to go on an antidepressant for awhile to deal with severe mood swings. I didnt take anything else and I pretty much breezed through it. A few mild hot flashes, heavy bleeding, and the aforementioned mood swings. The worst for me was my sleeping patterns became wonky. I still wake up at odd times and cant go back to sleep, and I've been out of menopause for about 12 years. It was actually a blessing for me because I had suffered every since I got my period, and now I am FREE!!! I have a friend who takes all kinds of natural stuff and she is still going through it after at least 10 years. She wont go to a doctor and I think she would be better off if she let nature take its course. You just have to find what works for you, but if it doesnt work then try something else!!!

I just went with it. I never minded my period because in my mind I was still Young. I didn’t take anything or do anything different. Personally I would put the effort into your mental wellness and keep that strong. Because that also helps with your physical wellness. Welcome to the club. โค๏ธ

Just remember, you cant really measure your reaction by other people. It is a very individual process. I started menopause at 48 and came through it in 8 years I was on hrt and it was great but then I came off it last year and that was a mistake. I still had many of the symptons including really bad hot flushes and night sweats so I went back on hrt (oestrogel body identical with progesterone tablets) and I feel myself again. But then you can compare my experience to my sister, who sailed through with barely a flush. We are all different. It can be managed and you will find your way. Dont discount any help or advice. You may be afraid to try hrt but it might work for you. Good luck xx

I am 80 and I just let nature take her course. Don’t be afraid. I took no supplements and remained sexually active. My periods just tapered off and stopped. And even at this age I have a wonderful boyfriend! Think positive and just go with it!

My sister had breast cancer. When they tested the cancer during surgery, she was advised that it was hormone based. Her hormone therapy for menopause caused her cancer. So when I went through menopause the doctors wouldn’t give me hormones. It was bad at times but once it was over it was better.

sometimes it’s never over had a hysterectomy at 39 took hormone replacement at. 43. for 13 yrs. i’m now 77 and still get symptoms

Just go with nature. Important thing is diet and weight bearing exercise. I did HRT for 10 yrs, then stopped it. Then was diagnosed with breast cancer in which HRT can contribute to. ( I didn’t know it at the time I was doing HRT) weight bearing exercise help big in helping to prevent osteoporosis Also take a Vitamin D supplement.

I went on HRT for years felt great but when I went off in my 60:s still went through menopause .

If I hadn't taken some kind of hormone replacements, I would have wound up in jail for killing someone just for the heck of it, or drowned in a river tears. Natural hormone therapy gave me my like back. Don't feel or be shamed into feeling like you have to just tough but out.

Blee. I was 42 when I started the menopause, I thought I was going crazy, huge mood swings, hrt was a godsend and worked like a charm, my hot flashes were so bad I had to sleep on a towel, I’m now 57 and suffering breakthrough bleeds lasting 12 days, lots of tests and apart from a tiny fibroid, they can’t find a cause ๐Ÿ˜• I had to stop hrt while they investigated, I was straight back to hot flashes and tears ๐Ÿ™
