    Why do women take hormones afterward?
    If a woman goes through premature menopause, which happened [in Jolie's case], there's actually an increased risk of developing heart disease. The estrogen that a woman is producing until her 50s is actually protective. Because heart disease is so prevalent in this country, it is generally felt that the benefits of hormone replacement therapy outweigh any potential risks.

    • I didn't need the hormones and I wouldn't have wanted to take them. But your ovaries produce hormones up to 10 years after menopause that help your heart 3-24-2015 8:15pm

      said there is a LOT of developmental growth around that age and they're just kind of struggling to manage and align all of it and it can be incredibly frustrating. Once they catch up a bit things start to fall back into place. Just be firm, but loving, and consistency is key

    I'm trying to find out if there's interest among moms who don't have college degrees to go back to school.

    I was able to finish my accredited college degree for less than $8,000 by studying on my own schedule and testing out of classes when I needed to. I would love to show moms who don't have a lot of time and/or money how to do what I did. Are there moms out there who would want to go back to school if they could do it on their own schedule and at an affordable rate (definitely less than $10k)?
