I spend a lot of time reading and writing about hormones and the menopause.
I read some great stuff and I read some rubbish!!
When I asked a group of women what are some of the myths they have heard this is the response I got.
~How to avoid the nightmare from hell known as menopause
~To HRT or not HRT? That is the menopause question
~There is nothing you can do if you don’t want to take HRT, you just need to get on with it!
~That it will be HORRIBLE!!!!
~You’ll gain weight and it only happens in your 50’s
~It’s over in your 50s
~You have to go on HRT
~It’s the nightmare from hell and only hard core hormonal help will save you!
~It’s no wonder women are terrified of it and ignore it at all costs!
I am filming some short ‘Menopause Myth Busting’ videos over the coming days to help you know the real deal on the change.
ps The plaster on my head is due to mole removal. I didnt want to procrastinate anymore about making the videos so you get me make up free and freshly scraped!
