Sadly there is not enough provision for women to really understand perimenopause and menopause and what is happening to them during midlife within the NHS. Some GP's are excellent and some practices do now have a menopause specialist or can refer to a specialist hospital clinic. But equally many women have been left disappointed and confused and not really knowing where to go for menopause help and advice. And a private consultation can be out of reach for so many due to the often huge cost.
But the last few years have seen a big rise in health services within the private arena for women during perimenopause and menopause. I have been contacted by a few of these and will be sharing my experience with the different options over the coming weeks and months.
On this blog post I am telling you about Health & Her and their new affordable online menopause clinic.
With Health & Her you can see a menopause GP online for an in-depth review of your symptoms, tailored treatment plans and prescription recommendations.
This isn't a long blog post - but have you ever suffered from tiny holes in cotton t-shirts and knitwear? Right in the middle at the front?! I do and I had absolutely no idea what was causing them. And it happens on new clothing too, after one wear! Sometimes the holes appear in other spots but generally they are right in the middle. I actually wrote about it on my blog a few years ago but didn't find an explanation or a solution. Until now - discover button covers!
Holé are silicon button covers, promising to rid you of those mysterious holes. I saw them on Instagram and then they got in touch, having found my original blog post and offering to solve the problem. They sent me two packets to try and two new colours to give feedback on.
I find it way to too difficult to workout alone. I've tried but. I need some guidance, I need to be told what to do and I need accountability to actually do my home workouts and not come up with some weak excuse! .I don't like going to a gym. It all takes too long. I want to workout in under an hour and carry on with the rest of my day. And gyms are closed anyway ... and so in 2020 we saw the rise of everything online, including Online PT and doing home exercises.
But how can Online PT work? And why do I think it is better than searching YouTube for home workouts.
