Now, since the technology has become so enrich with the ideas and has been extended to help us in every part of our life, people have started talking about their experiences and learning other stories in an extreme open manner.

Before reading about the solutions, I highly recommended to consult with the doctor as everyone has a different case and these solutions many not be applicable to everyone. So now, here are some few solutions that can help us during our tough days:

Similar to the app Clue, Menopause View helps you to record your daily feelings and thoughts. Besides working as a daily diary, the app also contains a glossary of over 175 definitions. Not only this, the app also has blogs written by women, who have gone through either professional or personal experience of menopause.
