      Hi Gill There are no contraindications taking with thyroid issues or thyroid medication. Although they contain soya it is fermented so is very different to whole soya foods such as soya milk which is not advised.

      Hi Maria If you are still getting regular, heavy periods then Menopause Support wouldn't be appropriate just now, but you may find taking a magnesium supplement 200mg twice a day can help with the fatigue. The changing hormones can also affect on-going health issues such as the thyroid so it is important that you get this and your medication checked really regularly as some women find they need their medication adjusted to take this into account. You do need more rest at this time so having 30 min me-time is really important, if you don't want to sleep in the afternoon why not try 30 min meditation or relaxation instead, this can be really beneficial!

    I'm 46 and suddenly don't feel in control of my life. I'm so tired and irrational all the time. I have always worked full time and have juggled babies and children and family things. I have none of that , and I can't cope with anything feeling this fatigue. Need something to give me energy.

      Hi Tracey I'm 48 and suddenly feeling tired all the time. Like you I've been juggling the family, working and doing all at home. I too feel like I want to 'turn the light off' but hate this as I'm worried what's going to happen around me as I'm the one who keeps it altogether. I need something to boost me. Did you find anything? Lou x

      Hi Tracey and Lou Fatigue is so common in the menopause and it can be difficult to try and cope with everything, your body is being tested by all the hormonal changes going on and if you have a very busy life as well you can end up running on empty. So the rest and relaxation is vital. If either of you have had heavy periods on the run up then you could be low in iron, you can ask your doctor for a test, also ask to be checked for low thyroid function, and low vit D just to rule these out. If you are looking for a general tonic try Biostrath, it's not one of our products but you can get it from most healthshops and big pharmacies.

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.
