    Hi @c1_

    If you go to the small magnifier symbol on the tool bar top right, click on menopause and /or PsA and / or supplements you can find members discussions and advice sharing on loads of subjects which I hope you will find helpful. There are also information sheets on the VA website . Do get back to us when you have had a chance to explore, ask more questions and join in with conversations.

    Best wishes
