How to get Menopause Advice


In case you haven’t noticed, it was World Menopause Day on Monday 18th November, which is also in the middle of Menopause Awareness month!  I am so pleased to see articles in many papers and magazines, to hear discussions on the radio – led by male presenters I might add, talking about the menopause.


Some of you may think ‘oh no, not the M word again’!!  If that is you – STOP and wonder why you are thinking that.  The thing is, the menopause WILL happen – fact!  We are told and taught about periods & the menstrual cycle, but we are not taught about menopause, which can occur for nearly 1/2 of a woman’s life!!

So stop, take note and be aware of what hormonal changes are happening.  As I always say, education and knowledge is SO important.

Finally, the Government is taking action – after all of the rallying and awareness campaigns by women’s menopause groups, they are finally looking at how to help women get easier access to menopause care!

I thought I would share some really informative websites, books and people to learn more about it.  So have a look below at menopause advice.
