Another well-known celebrity is also opening up about her sexual health, the former first lady Michelle Obama. She recently shared her frustration with the lack of information to guide her through menopause.

The 58 year old revealed on The Michelle Obama Podcast that she experienced both hot flashes and weight gain when she was going through menopause, which marks the end to a woman's menstrual cycle and typically occurs between the ages of 45 to 55.

Like many women, she made the decision to use hormone replacement therapy which mimics her own naturally occurring hormones, namely estrogen and helps return it to the proper level.

A:

When she first started experiencing symptoms, Mrs. Obama turned to her mother for answers, "I wanted to know what I was getting into, but my Mom (said) - yeah i think I went through it but I don't remember anything"

Her experience with menopause symptoms was 8 years ago but, Michelle Obama still is shocked that there isn't more information readily available. Despite all her friends going through the same things, Michelle said in a recent interview, that "information was sparse"

Lucky for Michelle and everyone else experiencing menopause, there's plenty of information about menopause, IVF, pregnancy, and celebrity sexual health news at getmegiddy.com, the world's largest sexual health platform.
