Menopause changes a woman’s life drastically as the ends of menstruation and fertility come to a head. We enter a new world of hot flashes and ugly mood swings and it’s almost as if we become different people. Anytime the topic of menopause comes up women everywhere shudder regardless of their age because the symptoms sound so terrible. We often put celebrities on pedestals and forget that they are real people who have to experience the same things as we do. But many female celebrities have spoken about their experiences, even Mel Gibson has said that he felt he went through some kind of male menopause due to his tirades. See how celebrities cope with menopause and how it has affected them.
Whoopi Goldberg has been very candid about her experience with menopause and how it has affected her life. “My sex drive has totally changed. One minute I'm like, 'Yeah! I can't wait for it.' The next I'm saying, 'Oh God, go away.'”
She also experienced the ability not to care what people thought. She removed people from her life who she felt were negative. Her roller coaster ride of emotions were hard to take however, as she mentions getting mad at people all the time only to apologize later for her behaviour. Photo Credit: lev radin / Shutterstock.com
