After having had my own menopause onset by risk reducing surgery at the age of 39 and then working with many women who were going trough their own peri-menopause and menopause one thing became very clear to me: It is absolutely possible to have a positive menopause experience. Sadly the opposite is true for most women I speak to. Women often do not know what is happening to them, symptoms creep up on them and too often are we stuck in a ‘put up with it to get through’ mentality.
One thing that most women tell me is that they want more information. And I agree. The more evidence based information we have, the easier it becomes to make well informed decisions for our health and wellbeing.
If it was only so simple though! The internet is a web of contradicting and confusing tales. Many women have zero idea what is going on with them. They try an array of supplements in the hope to feel better, to tend to their often unexplained and random symptoms. “I think I’m going mad!” is a phrase I am told so often. Some turn to online chat forums to find answers. Many women feel unsupported by their general practitioners. And of course, the elephant in the room when we talk about menopause management and hormone replacement therapy is always the alleged risk of breast cancer.
