There is an overwhelming consensus among many women that menopause signals the end of life as they knew it. Often feeling like an alien has taken possession of their mind and body, as well as feeling switched off below the waist resulting in zero libido. It seems … Read More

Millions of women suffer problems as a result of weak pelvic floor muscles. It’s thought that one in four women will suffer with pelvic floor disorders and this is magnified at the menopause and beyond.
