      Hi Jacky If your periods stopped that long ago you are more than likely well through the menopause now. Lots of women can go through it without any problems or even being aware of the hormonal changes. You are one of the lucky ones!

      Hi Alison It can be hard to motivate yourself if you are fatigued but we do know that making minor changes to your diet and lifestyle can make a huge difference! However, constant fatigue can be due to other factors such as low iron, low thyroid function, low vitamin D or B12 so it would be a good idea to ask your doctor to test you for these just to rule them out. In the meantime you may find our sage tablets helpful for the flushes, you could take one with your evening meal.

    Is it ok to take menopause support alongside thyroxine?

      Hi Debbie There are no contraindications listed so it should be fine. Although it is soya the soya is fermented which is very different from whole soya foods such as soya milk which is not recommended with thyroid medication.

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
