Love is in the Care

February - the month of love is here.

World over we would see: COVID out/ CUPID in


This is my 5th blog and I am enjoying writing every bit of it. A MALE friend gave me feedback that Menopause is a natural process of a female body so I am unnecessarily romanticizing Menopause by writing about it. It happens to every woman, and it goes away. So according to him, I shouldn’t make this sound like a big issue.


Point well taken my friend. I agree that menopause is as natural as menses and pregnancy. We are glad to have an open healthy conversation about it because 50% of the world population goes through it and the other 50% is clueless as to what happens in menopause and what they can do to make it easier to pass through.


So dear men, from all ages and stages of life, I write this blog especially for you. I am setting a quiz for you to take and get enlightened a bit about why the ladies in your life suddenly look, sound, and feel so different than their own selves, as they near the menopausal age.
