Ever since I posted about Menopause Awareness Month, I’ve noticed a really interesting trend in my blog stats (for those of you who aren’t techies or bloggers, blog stats are a way for you to see the kind of traffic your blog is getting, like how many people visit your site each day and how they get to you (via google searches or links on other sites)). Lately, a good percentage of my daily traffic comes from people searching for the word menopause on the internet.
Maybe it’s not too surprising, considering the number of women entering into menopause or who are in the midst of it, and the lack of attention it gets in comparison to things like childbirth or contraception. So I’m going to try and write more about menopause on my blog, and I’m starting with this special edition news round-up on menopause. Enjoy! And if there are any readers out there with particular questions or interests around menopause, let me know what you what to see written about in the future!
