Today I had the pleasure of being a guest editor on Nihal Arthanayake’s show on BBC Radio Five Live. We were joined by Dr Louise Newson (aka the Menopause Doctor) and Dianne Danzebrink (founder of Menopause Support).
Nihal was a brilliant host and allowed us all to speak openly and freely about our different experiences of the menopause. Refreshingly, he also brought other men into the conversation and encouraged them to talk about the menopause with their wives and partners.
If you haven’t had the chance to hear the show, you can listen to it on BBC iPlayer by clicking here.
The overwhelming response to the show has made me realise just how far we’ve all come in a relatively short space of time. But it also shows me just how far we have to go in terms of education and raising awareness.
Let’s keep the momentum going!
