Welcome to my ‘Weekly Wisdom’ where I will be focusing on rekindling libido during the menopause. Many women I encounter in the clinic tell me that they feel like they have been switched off from the waist downwards during menopause.

Going through menopause you will experience different types of symptoms and I like to break down menopausal symptoms into two categories: Whenever people think of menopause they associate it with the hot flushes and night sweats.

Men coping with Menopause. I’ve been rejecting men on a daily basis for many months, something I never dreamed I would do, but today I have decided to call a halt to it. Instead of turning my back on the men who are living with menopausal women, I’m focussing on helping men to understand what women are going through at this life stage, and the kind of support needed to help get back the woman they fell in love with. Since opening the doors of my Facebook Group Making the Midlife Switch less than a year ago, women have been journeying with me learning how to reclaim their wellbeing. I have not only attracted over 20,000 women, but it has also sparked interest amongst large numbers of men.

This is in addition to research from The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), which found that over 56% of perimenopausal women are getting less than seven hours of sleep a night, and are at high risk of heart attack.

Meanwhile, 80% of women experience menopausal symptoms, including the physical – hot flushes, insomnia and weight gain, and the psychological and emotional, including mood changes, depression and anxiety. These revelations, coupled with the apparent positive news that HRT won’t kill you and merely increases your chances of getting cancer or having a stroke, is not how we best prepare 14 million women a year for entering what is just a natural phase of … Read More
This week I’m focusing on painful sex and all those embarrassing things that we never talk to even our best friends about. It happens to so many of us at the menopause, in fact we’ve done surveys and found that over 50% of women can’t have an orgasm. They have a dry vagina. It’s painful and sometimes it even bleeds and that is just awful – especially at the time in your life when you feel that maybe you can have more time with your partner because your kids have gone to university and suddenly you’re curled up on the edge of the bed not wanting to be touched because you’re afraid of what’s going to happen. If this is you, you are not alone. And the good news is you can overcome those symptoms and nobody’s really telling you that. All you need is to understand what’s going on … Read More
