I was aware that I could be peri-menopausal because my mum started going through the menopause at 40. My symptoms kicked in in earnest in my early 40’s, and I knew I wasn’t ‘myself’ – terrible night sweats, hot flushes during the day, mood swings and irritability were all signs. Since then, I’ve discovered a whole lot more about the symptoms of the menopause – there are 34 in total – and I wanted to share them all with you guys.
I sat down with Dr Tina Peers, a menopause specialists, to discuss in detail all the different symptoms that could be part of the menopause. I hope this helps you and you find your way back to your best self.
In part one of our video on menopause symptoms, I talk to Dr Tina Peers about hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety and generally not feeling yourself.
In this episode, I chat to Dr Tina Peers about sex, looking after your lady bits and feeling down.
In the final part of our video, I talk to Dr Tina Peers about having a hysterectomy and the pros and cons of HRT.
