Join the 2nd talk with Poise

This campaign is now closed.

Do you remember that first talk, when you learned about how your body works? That talk about puberty, monthly cycles and the work of your changing body? I remember well because I was so young when I started menstruating and was totally unprepared and scared. I remember crying and crying. I wanted no part of this!

Approaching menopause, many women may feel the same way, unprepared and anxious and wanting no part of this!

Now Poise is encouraging women to have The Second Talk, encouraging discussion of this very normal part of a women’s life.

Poise started The 2nd Talk to help make this stage of life better for all women by giving them the confidence to talk about menopause in a whole new way and to better prepare them for this time in their lives.

Poise is encouraging you to learn more about their new products, hear stories from real women, share your own story and pledge to join The 2nd Talk at Poise.com.

Hot flashes were always the worst thing for me. I would have heat starting at about my waist and then rising up like a volcano that would erupt in intense sweating. The littlest thing could cause an eruption: frustration, anger, impatience, or sometimes just nothing at all could trigger the heat. At times my husband felt like he was walking on eggshells.

Poise now offers a unique line of daily products specifically designed for women at this stage in their lives. I recently tried Poise Roll-On Cooling Gel. Its cool sensation comforted me through the heat of a hot flash. I love that the size is perfect for throwing in my purse too. It helps to know that comfort is only a roll away.

Roll-On Cooling Gel helps you feel comfortable and refreshed. Squeeze the tube and gently roll the cooling gel on wrists, chest or neck for a cooling sensation that lasts up to 10 minutes. The Body Cooling Towelettes offer instant cooling and refreshment. Gently wipe the towelette on wrists, chest or neck to feel cool and comfortable. Featuring a portable, resealable package, these towelettes are easy to use anywhere you go.

Other Poise products to help with life’s little changes include:

    My biggest life change right now is having my first child (so no menopause just yet!)! I’m finding confidence in preparing for that by taking time to research it and work through my feelings/fears beforehand, so that when the time comes, I’ll (hopefully) be more ready for it!

  28. Kerry says:

    I’m just taking it one day at a time – and hoping that my symptoms aren’t as bad as my moms were!

  29. Maureen says:

    I have not had an easy time of it. I am still going through it. I have contacted my doctor regarding different issues and each time she says that what I am experiencing seems to be a symptom of perimenopause with menopause coming on. Some days are good and others really not so good. I just have to take it as it comes. I am not taking medication due to a health issue (unrelated) so I have to do things naturally. I am taking it as it comes.

  30. Amy Tong says:

    The roll on gel seems very comfortable. I would love to give that a try.
    I am approaching life’s changes confidently by thinking positively. It might be easier said than done. But I’m trying my best.

    I am trying to have a good attitude about it, wrinkles and the rest of all the glory! Hopefully I will be able to joke about it and not let it get the best of me. Thank goodness companies are addressing this as an important issue for women and creating products to help us!

    Haven ‘t gotten to menopause yet – will take it one day at a time. Thanks for all the info about products that help out!

  43. Wild Orchid says:

    I am accepting that change is a way of life, good or bad. We must embrace change and not try and fight it. That is the attitude I am trying to take anyway!

    I took hormones for a year and a half after surgery and I had some attitude, to put it nicely, then discovered breast cancer, attitudes change and so does focus, but the HOT FLASHES goodness I don’t think they will ever stop… 14 years of them…
