It's okay to talk about birth, okay - then menstruation. I first started my advocacy for women's health in the field of reproductive freedom, and the next stage would be bringing menopause out of the closet. Cybill Shepherd
The literature of menopause is the saddest, the most awful, and the most medical of all genres. You're sleepless, you're anxious, you're fat, you're depressed - and the advice is always the same: take more walks, eat some kale, and drink lots of water. It didn't help. Sandra Tsing Loh
You go into the book store, there's the cut-out of Dr. Phil, and then the dreaded women's health section where every book, instead of the menopause book with the fanged Medusa head on the cover that might be more pertinent, you always see a flower and a poppy and a daisy and a stethoscope. Sandra Tsing Loh
Menopause is your return to where you were before, when your hormone levels are the same as a pre-adolescent girl's. Sandra Tsing Loh
Other people get moody in their forties and fifties - men get the male menopause. I missed the whole thing. I was just really happy. Rik Mayall
