Having both I am not sure which I prefer! I actually would prefer neither!
Sugarplum, I'd rather have the hotflashes and mood swings rather than joint pain!
I knew some of this. However, Asians don't always escape symptom free. Surprisingly many of them suffer with joint pain when going through menopause!
No, I didn't know, imagine that....

interesting! and to think my girlfriend was really surprised that I'm still going thru the change(:
I have to say that as I have changed my nutrition focus to "nutritarian" my monthly symptoms have lessened substantially. In fact what used to be a week from #$%& has become a surprise when TOM arrives. (ie."Oh, that's today??")

Yes I already knew this.
But thanks for the information.
I guess some it might be a real celebration.

Interesting...I know I don't have it as bad as some but it could be better.
Bet you're talking of the Asian culture. The Japanese women are known to just sail on through menopause, without a single symptom. I work with a Japanese woman and questioned her on symptoms and food, once, and I could tell she was baffled over the trouble the American women seem to have with menopause.
I do the Soy Milk, 2-3 glasses a day, but have never been brave enough to try the Soy you cook with. It just doesn't look like it would taste very good. May have to ask this lady if she would cook me up something with it (I know she would) so I could get some idea on the best way to prepare it. She brought me a package of dried seaweed and I loved the stuff, so who knows what else she could introduce me to.

I'm going to guess it's the Asian Culture.. but I'll have to google that.. lol..
Did you know that one culture doesn't even have the word for menopause?
Did you know that in one culture, when the women reaches menopause, they throw a party, announce that they are no longer of child bearing age, and the others highly respect her?
Did you know that those cultures that value growing older have less problems with perimenopause?
Also, did you know that in one culture, during TOM, one is more insightful, and her friends go to her to ask for advice, etc.?
Guess this is what one learns from reading and doing research...
