Knowledge is power – we hope these videos containing evidence-based information and advice from our experts help you decide what’s best for you to control your menopause symptoms.

Bone health and osteoporosis

Women over 45 spend more days in hospital because of osteoporosis than diabetes, heart attacks, or breast cancer. It’s a shocking statistic but the reality is most of us don’t really know what osteoporosis is let alone how we can treat it or keep it at bay. The good news is there are lots of easy ways to look after our bone health as our co-founders Helen Normoyle and Dr Clare (a Registered Menopause Specialist and GP) reveal in our latest video. They also discuss:

👉 What osteoporosis is and what causes it

👉 Why it’s more of an issue for a perimenopausal and menopausal woman

👉 Ways to reduce the risk

👉 How it can be managed

👉 If HRT helps

Remember, knowledge is power! We’ve also got lots more brilliant information about osteoporosis in our Symptom Checker

Menopause decoded

If we had a pound for every time someone asks us what the menopause is, we’d be millionaires. But with the menopause still being such a taboo subject, it’s hardly surprising that so many women are confused about what it is and whether they’re going through it. So we decided to put the record straight with this video from our co-founders Helen Normoyle and Dr Clare (Registered Menopause Specialist and GP) where they answer this plus some other really common questions including:

👉 When does the menopause transition start and how long does it last?

👉 How do you know if you’ve gone through it?

👉 What are the most common symptoms?

👉 What causes them?

👉 How long do symptoms typically last?

👉 What treatment options are available? Knowledge is power!

The menopause and mental health

Hands up if you think the most common symptoms of the menopause are physical issues like hot flushes and night sweats?

Got yours up? 🙌 You’re not alone. The reality, however, is that the menopause can have a massive impact on our mental health too.

Depression

Anxiety

Lack of motivation

Mood swings

Loss of confidence & self-esteem
