Life is Short: What Will You Stop Tolerating in 2015?

There’s a lot in life we tolerate. Some of it we have little control over (taxes, bad weather, traffic). But there’s a good chunk we suck up even when we don’t have to.

The Dollars and Cents of Menopause Relief

Show me a woman who isn’t starved: Starved for time, money, and let’s be honest, a little sanity! At Menopause Chicks, I’m on a mission to crack open the conversation on one of the most natural of life’s occurrences–yet one of the most taboo and misunderstood subjects: Menopause & perimenopause.

This imbalance sets up shop as ovulation becomes more and more irregular, resulting in low levels of progesterone.
