We Curated a Menopause Toolkit to Help You Navigate The Journey

Menopause is a natural phase of a woman’s life — and that’s worth celebrating. Here’s how to make the experience more manageable.

Every October, we join in on celebrating World Menopause Awareness month. And this year, we’ve curated a one-stop resource for all the information KCM has compiled over the last year to help you navigate “the change.” Whether you’re just at the beginning of this journey or you’ve been managing your symptoms for a few years already, there’s a ton of beneficial information — and products catered to this life stage — that can help make the shift a little more manageable.

With the help of our friends at Kindra — a female-led company that’s leading the charge in creating science-backed (and estrogen-free) menopausal products, providing expert guidance and resources, plus a powerful community — we’ve been able to answer some of your most pressing questions around the topic.

Between understanding uncomfortable symptoms like vaginal dryness and night sweats and figuring out how to live with hot flashes at work, one thing is clear: You’re not alone in this journey and there are plenty of resources and products designed specifically for this natural occurrence that can help you. Below, discover six articles that’ll guide you through menopause — no matter which stage you’re in.
