Just when you think you’ve pretty much explored all the joys of womanhood – you know, 40 years of menstruation, wearing heels all day and, of course, childbirth – along comes menopause. Hot flashes. Mood swings. Night sweats. Plummeting sex drive. Mouth sores. Yes, mouth sores (I found out about those when I was experiencing a bout of painful unexplained bumps on my tongue, which turn out to be one of the many unheralded bonuses of peri-menopause). And don’t forget the unwanted facial hair. I have a better beard than most 16-year-old boys.
