Hormonal or forgetful?

By Amy Jeetley @amyjeetley I’ve always prided myself on my sharpness of mind, clarity and understanding. I could pick up things quickly, work things out at a fast pace and recall many things. Over the last couple of years I’ve seen a decline in all this. I was thinking something is wrong. I started losing my confidence, and felt I was incapable of doing things I could a few years back.

Menopause. Pause. #WorldMenopauseDay2019
Womens Health
by  @lenabellina For #WorldMenopauseDay2019 Quite a long time ago, I was pretty unwell. Then I got my act together and for a long time I was a lot better. Suddenly about 7 years ago, I felt as if I was going backwards. I went to the GP with inexplicable mood swings and irrational rage. She mentioned “peri menopause”, changed my coil and gave me some HRT gel. I didn’t really take the peri-menopause thing seriously.

by Debra Kidd  @debrakidd I don’t like going to the doctors. I have to feel really, really shitty to go and so it was unusual to find myself sitting in front of one some three years or so ago. I was so embarrassed I’d learnt the list I would say off by heart:

by Alison Kriel @AlisonKriel  #WorldMenopauseDay2019 The menopause is a rite of passage that happens to every women yet it is a taboo subject! My grandmother definitely did not speak about it and my mum’s generation spoke with their eyes and mouthed ‘the change’. Slowly, it’s becoming easier to talk about our menopause amongst groups of women ‘of a certain age’ but it remains a stubbornly taboo subject in wider circles.

by Jo Lawrence @JoCLawrence On #WorldMenopauseDay let’s talk about chemo induced menopause. Yep, that’s right, the trial run you get when going through chemotherapy. As if my diagnosis wasn’t enough, being a 37 year old woman and a way off menopause and without children, I took the option to try to protect my ovaries through a treatment called Zoladex that suppressed my ovaries.
(My) Menopausal Madness. #WorldMenopauseDay2019

by Bretta Townend-Jowitt @Headspiration Madness part 1 – the need to clarify my reason for blogging. Earlier in my career I suffered from a lack of knowledge and understanding my employers had around fertility treatment, 14 years later I expected significant improvement, however, now at menopause age I’m discovering the same lack of knowledge and understanding of this topic too.
