Break The Silence with Nina Collins

If you’re new here, welcome! Kindra's "Break The Silence" series is dedicated to highlighting some seriously amazing women in our community, and sharing the inspiring work they’re doing to disrupt menopause, and challenge aging misconceptions.

You can check out previous conversations with other tastemakers like Omi Burney-Scott of Black Girls Guide to Surviving Menopause and Susan Feldman of In The Groove.

At Kindra, we say that “The first rule of menopause should be to TALK about menopause," which is why we were so excited to catch up with Nina Lorez Collins this month. Nina is a writer, entrepreneur, and the founder of The Woolfer, an online platform for like minded women over 40.

Read on for our exclusive conversation with Nina.

What is your age and menopause phase?

51, post-menopause.

What is the biggest thing your menopause journey taught you so far?

The calm found in getting older makes it all worth it.

If you could tell someone feeling anxious at the beginning of their journey one thing, what would that be?

You'll feel much better on the other side.

Recognizing the signs of menopause ‘ending’ is just as important as understanding the signs of its beginning. Learn more about the signs of approaching the end of menopause here.

What are the top 3 things you wish you knew when you started your menopause journey?

What to expect: insomnia, hot flashes, erratic periods, anxiety, higher cholesterol, dental issues. I just wish someone had warned me.
