Couples nowadays are starting families much later in life than in past generations. Whereas couples might have had their first child in their mid-twenties years ago, now some aren't having their first child until they're in their mid-thirties or even until they're into their forties. For women who have children closer to menopause, what are steps that can be taken to avoid falling down the hormonal flight of stairs? Pedram Shojai and Sara Gottfried discuss the idea of menopause as this rough time in a woman's life. What can women do to take control of their hormones as their bodies change? What are the effects of stress on a woman's hormones? Be warned, Pedram and Sara touch upon the topic of sex and sensuality in this episode that may not be appropriate for the younger crowd.
