Listen as Pamela tells how old she was when she began menopause.
I was actually 38 when I went into menopause, and I had no idea why I had gone into menopause. It was probably related to stress, or maybe it was just something about my biology. A lot of women go in their menopause prematurely, but nobody has really quite figured it out. It’s all a big mystery.
Well, I had this sense that I would never go on hormones when I went into menopause, and I was dead-set against it. I had figured that menopause was a natural life passage, and I was offended at the mere idea that it would be medicalized, that I would somehow need drugs to manage what was a natural process.
And then I would later, after educating myself about the science of hormones, recant on that and realized it was kind of like saying a woman should forego an epidural while giving birth.
