Default Period Drama's or Menopause??

Being a guy im rubbish with stuff involving the hormone fairy, however, If a woman is over reacting, being over emotional and generally un rational, how can you tell if its a period drama or the onset of the menopause...especially if the woman is of "that" age.

And as a secondary question, is HRT covered over here as part of your health cover or is it an extra??

A recent scientifical study by scienticians found that women find different male faces attractive depending on what point of their menstrual cycle they are currently in.

For example: when a woman is ovulating, she will prefer a man with rugged, masculine features.

However, when she is up on blocks (menstruating), she prefers a man doused in ****ing petrol, set on fire, with a large pair of scissors stuck in his ****ing eyes and a cricket stump jammed up his bastard arse.

Depends on the specific plan. Most won't cover out-patient precriptions though.


And 'that age' can be anything from 45 - 57, with the average being 51 (for a British woman, at least). Doesn't happen overnight, but symptons can lead up to it for a few years. Strictly speaking this is called climacteric.

Jammy women of that age really are too old for you, you should concentrate on those in their early 40's as they seem more settled. Just my opinion.
