I'm so happy to be reading an article on my favorite website about this very life changing event we ladies experience. I am 53 and am in my third year of riding. I have been having peri symptoms for several years. I chose Progesterone therapy with my ND and additional food, herb, and food applications. I have just been chugging along wading through the physical pain, mental fogginess, hot flashes, night sweats, and headaches, etc. I am very strong willed and forget that I can look to my Maker to carry me through and to others, who have experienced my same symptoms and challenges—like right now, reading what is being shared in this article.

My husband and I were just speaking about him utilizing our spare room to sleep since year-round our bedroom has been like Antarctica (lol). Thank you so much ladies for sharing your heart with me. I feel so blessed right now and have confirmation that I am in good company. Thank you Genevieve for your authentic responses, I'm loving every one.

Hi Julia,
I've found that when we are transparent about the challenges we're facing in our lives we tend to help more people. Our testimonies are what draw people in and give them hope. I'm glad mine did with you. I know you'll get through this. I did after 10 years and feel better than I ever have in years.
Blessings and hugs to you, Genevieve
The only time a hot flash worked out well is riding in the fall in chilly Alaska. I told my boyfriend at a stoplight it is a bit chilly. He suggested stopping and putting another layer on. I said, "No, a hot flash will happen." It did, and it was the only time it felt good. The sweating from the blast furnace in my body every two hours, emotional mood swings with crying, to happy, to wanting to strangle my boyfriend for suggesting green beans for dinner.

Where did this crazy person come from? All the crazy symptoms add stress. I did take a prescription to help, but I was always on edge at work because I would feel angry for no reason. Now I still get hot flashes on occasion but the emotional roller coaster is over. Thank heavens for my boyfriend, my friends who listened, and my bike. The peace from riding always helps.

I have made me an herbal cannabis cream that helps me stay off of medications and hormones. I am a horse lover and didn’t want to do pmu Premarin so I’ve been fighting hormone therapy. I won’t ride under the influence but I sure will wear it!

Thanks for this article. I just started my riding journey this year at 56, which also happens to be when my body began active menopause. I'm struggling to get in my time and experience on the roads due to all the fluctuations in my body. One day I ride with confidence, the next it's like I've never ridden before. My grip strength is challenged. I've upped my exercise from tai chi to include strength bands to help. My boyfriend, a lifelong biker, only says, "ride more." I know he is right, but I'm trying to get my hormones kinda straight at the same time. But I'm not giving up! I ride mostly alone locally as I get more experience. I'm glad to hear my new challenges can be met head on.
