Kim introduces herself and shares when she began to experience menopause symptoms that quickly lead to a sexual health problem.
Hi, My name is Kim and I wanted to share some of my sexual health story with all of you.
It actually started some, gosh, it’s been 23 years and I went through menopause on my 31st birthday. I cannot tell you how shocking that was to me. I actually thought it was a joke.
I went to my local physician and told him that I was experiencing hot flashes and a strange and sudden weight gain and that I felt very emotional and he said, “Gosh, it sounds like menopause,” and we thought that was hilarious and we laughed about it. And he sent me to an endocrinologist and sure enough, he confirmed that it wasn’t a joke at all; that I really was going through menopause.
