It’s time to talk about Menopause
Join us on Thursday 16th July at 11am for our next virtual coffee morning where we will dispel the myths and get to grips with the facts about menopause.
As women, we battle against our hormones for most of our lives – starting from our teenage years right through to older age. So, why is talking about the menopause so taboo? When it’s something all women experience and all in their own unique way.
Menopause is a big transition in our lives, signalling the end of one era and the beginning of the next. One of the beauties of menopause is that it’s your own, and your experience will be different from everyone else’s. You may experience specific symptoms, issues and sometimes complications. Or you may not. For some women, it takes over their lives, while others simply sail through it.
While the menopause officially begins one year after a woman’s final period, we may experience symptoms of the menopause (such as hot flushes, anxiety, changes in the skin and tiredness) many years before our final menstrual cycle. We believe it’s time to change the way we talk about the menopause – to dispel the myths, get to grips with the facts and talk about menopause openly with other women.
In our next virtual coffee morning, Dr Sophie Shotter will share her knowledge and expertise to help you take control and keep the balance in your life. She will discuss the different stages of menopause, looking at the role that hormones play in our lives and how these change as we experience menopause. She will also explore the treatments available, such as BHRT, which can help regulate hormonal imbalance and alleviate hot flushes, aches and pains, insomnia and all the challenges we women have to overcome.
As we age, our skin’s appearance changes along the way and many women don’t consider that menopause may be the source of the problem. Oestrogen, the vital ingredient in maintaining skin health, significantly declines during and in the years leading up to menopause. This reduction can cause significant changes within the skin, often over a short period of time. In fact, low oestrogen levels can cause even greater collagen loss than chronological ageing. During the session, Dr Shotter will be joined by an Emepelle skin specialist to discuss these changes and how to manage them using the ground-breaking Emepelle range. Emepelle is the only anti-ageing skincare to contain MEP technology, a new kind of skincare ingredient, which addresses the collagen loss by making the skin behave as if oestrogen were still there.
Whether you have already entered the new phase of your life or would simply like to learn more about you can manage the changes before they take effect, this unique presentation will help guide you through the maze so you can make more informed choices relating to management of the menopause. It will encourage you to explore the options and think about what’s right for you so you can positively thrive both at work and in your personal life.
There will be plenty of time for a Q&A at the end of the presentation, where Dr Sophie Shotter will answer your live questions. We’d love to catch up with you, so please put the date in your diary and join us for a sparkling discussion and an excellent opportunity for us all to embrace a happier, healthier menopause.
