Exercise can help remove stress and negative feelings, relieve problems about your sleep, improve your mood and improve the quality of your life. So it can be said that exercise does not directly get rid of menopause symptoms, but it can partly contribute to reduce the emotional symptoms of menopause like irritability and depression; and offer other health benefits during women’s menopausal period. Exercise is also a key part of Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis. You can find more tips on You should do exercise 3 to 4 times weekly and at least 30 minutes of moderate activity per a time.

I've found my as traits much more difficult to cope with during the menopause. I feel like I'm going back to my childhood.

I need help to understand my adult son with Aspergers!  

Is there a respite home for him to go to help him socialise and understand he is not alone with his condition?
