A nurse at my practice told me about the lack of estrogen causing reduced elasticity and thus prolonging the lovely stress incontinence problem back at 8 weeks when I called in a panic. (The doctor's reply was let me know how it is in six months...then we'll worry. Turns out he was right, it's slowly getting better.) It then occurred to me that at menopause, the lack of estrogen can also make women look older suddenly. So I put it together that my sad face in the mirror was not just exhaustion -- or sudden aging -- but rather that lack of estrogen. OK, and being really tired.

(I admit here that I just bought myself a really nice jar of face cream that people swear by in helping cheer things up a bit.)
