I started menopause at 53 and did it without any supplements. I fasted often. I was also very aware not to fan myself when having hot flashes - especially in the corporate environment where I worked (also with family) because of the stigma. I was told at 56 that I am getting too old to be promoted. Started my own companies at 59😊 healthy and energetic at 61 and going strong.

My spouse and I are separating after 25 years of marriage and 28 years together. Why? I boil it down to menopause. I helped him through a decade of Lyme Disease issues; I was his "patient advocate" to the point that doctors and I emailed each other to help with his care, from fitness, diet, and naturopath to specialists. I'm a year into menopause, and I'm "too much." It breaks my heart.

When I was going through menopause, my husband told me to "fix it" and to "stop making excuses" , that "other women" didn't experience the same things that I was experiencing. There was no compassion or empathy no matter how much I tried to explain what was happening inside of me. We are no longer married. Maybe if I told him it was the equivalent of his testicles shrinking to nothing, he would have been more receptive.

I started perimenopause at 37, then like a text book countdown I started dropping one menstrual cycle a year for ten years. 47 was apparently "early" to be fully in menopause and my doc recommended a bone scan as it could increase my risk of osteoporosis. Interestingly, my bones were strong and perfectly fine and the lady who did the scan told me she sees this in many overweight women like me, and its one of the very few advantages to being heavier. Basically, we are constantly weight lifting due to the excess body mass we carry, so our bones are stronger. Im carrying an excess of around 30lbs. Im now 52, and have suffered what I would call challenging, but not crippling symptoms. I have never felt the need to take HRT as I didnt ever feel that debilitated by menopause. I had almost every "symptom" but luckily to a lesser degree than some ladies who I know struggle terribly. I feel absolutely fabulous at 52, most symptoms have now left and Im loving this new phase. I have made a few lifestyle and nutritional changes that Im happy to share if it helps others..... Vit D daily - 4000iu Marine collagen suppliment in my morning coffee - this has had a very beneficial impact of the aches and pains for sure. Stopped using so many chemicals on my body, quit dying my hair and went silver and started making my own organic soaps as a hobby. I use the 16.8 fasting routine which has helped my gut massively. Daily serving of blueberries and apple with a good prebiotic natural yoghurt. Eat good quality meats and make a lot of bone broth and collegen based soups from organic animal joints. Grow my own veg - (I dont have a huge space but I try my best) Walk at least 30 mins a day, mostly more than that with my dog. Limit alcohol for special occasions, also watch caffine intake. Drink enough water (this makes such a difference to my mental clarity) Get a good night's sleep, have a good sleep routine (I dont have a TV in my bedroom) Dont watch the news - its always bad and depressing. Practice gratitude, count your blessings in life. Get out with friends, laugh, and certainly NEVER say "Im getting old" Most of all ladies, keep a positive mindset as much as you can, we can often talk ourselves into feeling low by our attitudes to what we are facing. Im here as proof that there is a fabulous life after menopause, its not a "decline" , its a freedom!!

After 35, realized I do not tolerate the hair colour..stopped and for a while I just have highlights. I had some problems with a knee, felt tired, stressed, had delays in period..I ignored most of the things , did not give importance, did not thought much about them. Then , around 40 gained a lot of weight. 60lbs, along a year.. thought is the change in lifestyle, a more sedentary life. 2022 started gym again, abandoned. Beginning of 2023 , so, 3 years overweight, went again , lost weight , lifting weights, gained strength. .. discovered that I am less tolerant to people, started to cut many from my life, changed a lot, had hot flushes, for a bone graft had some blood tests and had vit D very low..then , I realized that my period is gone.. missing for months. Only then I put all together , thought about menopause and realized that I knew nothing , I was not ready.. I entered in another stage of my life and had no clue. 44 . Thank you for your advice. Will make bone broth and seek collagen powder ...bought vitamins . I think the face saw major changes and do not think is from losing weight..but, loss of collagen and estrogen.. I woke up looking to an older self, overnight.

I "muscled" through 2 yrs of symptoms before deciding to ask for HRT. 7 months after started and about 60-70% of my symptoms gone, I switched insurance companies. Saw a female doctor who said "I don't practice medicine like that" when I told her I still wanted medicine regardless of the "risks" she was so concerned about. It was insane to hear. Her comments made me feel like I was asking for euthanasia and her "beliefs" were to save me by lengthening my life. I told her I choose quality over quantity. Anyway, I ended up getting a second opinion and will continue my HRT treatment. Doctors are NOT listening to patients. Advocating for ourselves is an uphill battle. Thanks so much for this video!❤

HRT is such low dose today -the side effects, if any, are so minor in comparison to the psychological and emotional HELL that menopause can be for some people….!

I agree. Its time that we all wake up to the truth and realize that our government and our medical system was not designed to keep us happy or healthy or to protect us from unnecessary suffering unless they could profit by doing so. Hiding the truth and causing suffering is essential for their business to be successful. The system is rigged so that they can profit off of our ignorance. None of this was a mistake, no, it was all intentional. I'm 66 a nutritionist and just retired from the UC Hospital's Center for Women's Health and have been watching this happen for decades. We can't depend on MDs anymore, except to provide catastrophic care, or the government. We can only depend on ourselves and therefore we must educate ourselves and our children extremely well. There's a lot of good books out there and a lot of educational material including alternative options for health and happiness including the infinite power of our consciousness. They do not want you to know the the truth or to find the answers, but all the answers are out there, you just need to know where to look and many of those wonderful healers are right here on KZbin!

My mum started acting like a bear with a sore head and was in her late 40s at the time. My dad and i took it for as long as we could, thinking it might just be SAD (it was during the winter months) but eventually it was clear something was seriously wrong and we had to stage a kind of 'intervention' and make her go to the doctors. I'm sure she was peri-menopausal too but this was her thyroid and she was VERY deficient. There are so many things that can hit you at this time of life, like a brick. Be nice to middle aged ladies. They are probably hanging on by a thread for one reason or another.

I came here because I turned 58 yesterday. I am at the height of my misery with menopause. But instead of the symptoms diminishing, they continue to get worse. This started already 14 years ago with missed periods. Now I can’t sleep for more than three hours at a time because of the Inferno that breaks out inside when I try. I sweat so hard some nights. I change pajamas three times. Even my socks and my pillow are soaked. I have always been denied estrogenbecause I have a heart condition. But now I’m demanding it. I’m going to die from the sleep loss if something else doesn’t get me first. Please pray for me I can’t stop crying.

I’m so thankful for this video. I turned 45 this year and peri-menopause hit me like a brick. Starting in January was my first menstrual cycle change after being like clockwork my whole life. Starting the end of February I started to bleed - then I kept bleeding. I gained like 40lbs, can’t sleep, digestion was crap, felt like crap, and quite honestly felt more mentally out of sorts. In total this year I’ve spent 9 months with no break of menstruation. By April I went in to my OB for my Pap smear with the thought they were going to check my hormones at the visit as I specifically noted on the appointment of my never ending period. During that visit they weren’t even going to do it!! I’m like, are you kidding? This is not normal and something is wrong. I forced them begrudgingly to order the labs, while being brushed off to be told “well your heading in to menopause and this is just what happens”. Such horse shit that I have to advocate for myself to get care. Wouldn’t you know it, I have extremely high estrogen (which, I know is opposite of menopause) but maybe someone else has gone through what I’m still going through. Basically to sum up my entire year: I’ve had multiple biopsies and ultrasounds, I have/had polyps in my endometrial lining of my uterus, I’ve had one procedure to have it all cleaned out, they put me on 10mg of progesterone, and all of that didn’t do crap. I’ve been in at least 5 times this year and every time they say my only option is bloody birth control or having a hysterectomy. I tried to ask them about some sort of hormone therapy or if they even checked to see if my testosterone is out of whack with the rest. I’m changing my provider in the new year since Kaiser has epically let me down. The audacity of any doctor telling me that my condition is just something I’ll have to deal with until I hit actual menopause? Bleeding every fucking day for like the next 5-10 years? Or having my uterus removed? Are you fucking kidding me? The medical profession is beyond letting us down, demand for your self ladies, don’t let them sell you on that “well it’s just apart of you getting older” b.s.

Good for you for not letting up 👏🏼. I went with similar symptoms to my doctor 3 yrs ago and she said my only options were birth control, uterine ablation or hysterectomy.

I’ve since been researching a lot on my own and just trying things to see what might help, so far finally finding some relief this year of many symptoms with a low carb/high fat & protein, meat heavy, whole food animal based diet - will continue to advocate for myself and experiment on myself - I won’t settle for their “only options”.

And all along I have been suffering with perimenopause. My marriage has suffered and my quality of life has been sub par.

Peri menopause was hell on earth for me. Insomnia, chronic fatigue, extreme brain fog, body aches and pains, inability to regulate my mood, anxiety attacks, suicidal thoughts to name a few. I was utterly terrified as I had no idea what was going on. It was a psychologist who said to me you are at the severe end of peri menopause. Get on HRT now. HRT has been a total game changer. I only wish I had gone on it when my symptoms started at around 46. It wasn’t until I could barely function and was ready to end it all that I went on HRT at 49. And then I felt so ignorant about not knowing what was going on in my body. Thank you so much for speaking out on this issue. One thing find quite upsetting is that it’s not just men who don’t understand or support. Some of the harshest judgement and dismissal has come from women who had an easier journey through peri menopause / menopause. Not everyone has the same experience.

Amen to that! I know two men that have gone through prostate cancer treatment that are experiencing basically menopause and/or post menopause. They get hot flashes because they are on hormone suppressant drugs to ward of reoccurring cancer. They also feel weaker and have lost muscle mass just like women do when not on hormone therapy. The men you are speaking of should connect with a man that has survived prostate cancer and they will have a better understanding of what we go through as women if our health is neglected and marginalized over the duration of our lives starting with perimenopause onward by the health care community. I assure you survivors of prostate cancer wish they could have their hormones back.

I am not sure when my menopause started, but I think it was around the age of 44, or 45. I am now 49; I have been on HRT on and off for almost 2 years. Some of the symptoms eased, like my endless night sweats and hot flushes, but I have a plethora of other ones: aches and pains, terrible brain fog, gastrointestinal issues, bladder issues, and tiredness because I can't sleep properly. But above all, I am constantly irritable. Anything and everyone annoys me. I turned into a different person, one that I don't recognise and don't like. I feel like my old self has gone and someone else has taken over my body and my soul. I hate every single minute of menopause.

Also in Germany there is no knowledge coming from gynecologists, or whatsoever since they themselves don't study it and our health-insurances can't bill that kind of information from them.

I'm 60 and have been on HRT for 15 years. I will NEVER voluntarily go off it. I also strength train and eat a clean, high-protein diet. But without the hrt it wouldn't make much difference. Without it, I suffered every symptom on the list, on a scale of 11 out of 10. I educated myself when I was going through this and I have advocated for myself with a long line of (sometimes really ignorant) doctors. I live in fear that I will be unable to keep finding doctors willing to prescribe, or that the hormones will no longer be available- because the pharma companies by and large have stopped making them. They want us to be on a whole list of meds for each separate symptom, rather t han just one or two that ABSOLUTELY FIXED EVERYTHING. Women- and everyone who loves a woman going through this- need to kick up a fuss about this and not take no for an answer. It's life or death. Literally. Without my hrt I would have no interest in living. Go back to that hell? Never. Society DOES not value post-fertile women, so we HAVE to value ourselves.

It’s absolutely frustrating the amount of doctors who know nothing about menopause and who gaslight women about it’s symptoms. Enough is enough. Amazing interview, thanks!!

As a poor, low income, working class woman I have been let down by the medical community multiple times throughout my life. I’ve been uninsured the majority of my life due to lack of money. I’ve been forced to take my medical care into my own hands. I’ve been forced to educate myself and go the natural route. Low cost and free medical care doesn’t work, access to it is difficult when you don’t have a living wage income. You become invisible as a woman as you age in this nation and disregarded medically too. I’m surviving and not because I’ve gotten any tangible help. The information is out there to help with many issues but you have to want to find it and learn on your own. I have a regimen now that I’ve figured out for myself. WOMEN BECOME INVISIBLE AS THEY AGE in this nation. This is for everything! YOU must take things into your own hands. As a lower income woman, you matter even less in this society. Especially if you have no family, few friends, and a threadbare support system.

I started at 42. Doctor didnt even consider it to be "early" menopause and offered me nothing. But I didnt need anything. Menstruation simply stopped. I had little to no issues at all, just the odd "hot flush". Guess I am one of the lucky ones. I do wonder if THE PILL interferes with the female hormones and I was hardly ever on the pill since I had one son when 25 an left his dad when he was 6 and have been on my own ever since, mostly sex free so didnt need to be on that poison that fks with your hormones. Am in my 50s now so well past it all.

@@-Free.Spirit- I didn't do the pill for more than a few weeks because it caused me to have pretty serious depression in a very short time, so I said forget it to that stuff, so I may be a good counter to your experience to say, at least not in all cases, having taken the pill may not be the problem in menopause. Maybe, I don't know. But my time with it was so short as to be a nonuser, and when menopause hit me at about 47-48 years of age, it hit hard. I had the worst hot flashes for years, and 8 years later, I still deal with them on occasion. I would get a hot flash at night when I was trying to sleep, I'd push the covers off of me until I finally cooled off, then, as I was pulling the covers back up, just that little activity would cause me to have another one! Forget turning - guaranteed hot flash. I had really horrible myclonus start around that time, so turned to taking some CBD and THC to get sleep, and was surprised to see that they helped with the hot flashes, so I kept doing them for a while. They knocked them back to where I could function somewhat, and after a while, I was grateful I was able to stop taking the supplements. I appreciated this doctor's talk, and definitely want to look into HRT and other supplements now.

I didn’t talk to my husband about the depression and loneliness because I didn’t want to worry him…and I knew it was because of hormone changes and would pass…if I could ride it out.

I hit post-menopause at age 39- Im 41 now. I missed my pre menopause stage as far as knowing that’s what was happening to me because no doctors would check my hormones - they refused to believe it was hormone related at my age. I was told my brain fog and feeling hot (like I was going to pass out) was just me having anxiety. Thanks to them I almost lost all bone density in my left leg and I got lost trying to find my way home one day. Oh and one summer I felt like I was having a stroke episode which prompted me to finally demand testing. I suffered for four years before I was able to get someone to listen to me. I would write. A book if I told you the thing va my body went through. It was pure misery- I told my doctor that I didn’t want to live anymore because I had no quality fo life. I was mocked by nurses and doctors when I would describe my symptoms. It was horrible. Four years of misery that I can’t get back. I could have just been on the estrogen and progesterone and be doing fine. I feel great now with it. If I miss a day or two I will feel it almost instantly. The medication literally keeps my body in line. People need to stop diagnosing females as mentally unstable every time we have a concern.

I must disagree with that advice. Yes, there are medical screwups, corrupt studies and strong medicines can have side effects etc. BUT our bodies are very complex and even with many years of training, MD’s (and clinical studies) disagree. The responsibility for your health is yours but you must rely on their knowledge to guide you in decision making. Not only do you not have their knowledge, emotional factors like fear,denial and bargaining, magical thinking, & rebellion against authority figures,for example,and human tendencies to rely on anecdotal “evidence” rather than huge studies and statistics can interfere with making the right choices. You are a babe in the woods when your health is at risk so ask questions but follow the numbers and hope for the best. I have seen people die regretting ignoring medical advice and handling things on their own. Medicine is not perfect but it is what we have.

I ended up going to Carnivore (eating only animal products and dairy) and my hormones corrected so I no longer need HRT. It may not work for everyone AND the elites don't want us eating meat. I wonder why?!!🤔 I also no longer need any meds and my arthritis, anklyosing spondylitis, joint pain, Ulcerative colitis and psoriasis has all cleared. That's a huge money loss to the pharmaceutical companies and to doctors.🤔 Follow the money!!💰 My husband joined me on Carnivore and we are both trim and have more muscle than we did 10 years ago. We have a neighbor that went Carnivore about 4 years ago who is also trim and no longer a diabetic and no longer needs blood pressure meds!! 😊💪

This is one of the most amazing interviews that I have had the privilege to watch. Thank you so very much for bringing the topic of menopause to light. I am 62 and was very unfortunate to have been married for 37 years to a man that was completely insensitive to any and all health issues that I experienced. Perimenopause and menopause for me were not only a physical nightmare, but an emotional one as well. I tended to keep to myself anything that I was experiencing, as even the Doctors often labeled most issues as “unexplained” or “in your head”. I suffered decades with severe and often debilitating endometriosis until I was finally diagnosed through a laparoscopy in my 40’s, even then, my treatment options were slim and my ex-husband could have cared less as he blamed anything that I was experiencing as me either having cramps or a hot flash. I pray the generations of young women going forward are treated with more dignity and better understanding and treatment than I was.

The "calories in calories out" model is sooo obsolete and any doc saying that is the ignoramus...not you! Far too many have not got the sense to realize that the body is an incredibly intricate feedback system that constantly adapts and changes. Sadly, they lack the humility to admit that they dont know how it all works...

Yeah, I personally felt like used up, damaged goods after menopause. I felt like I had lost what made me a woman and, like I was no longer valued in our society. I became invisible. The worst part was that no one ever prepared me about the emotional impact of menopause. No one from my generation had any idea what to expect.

That is so sad 😓 I'm post menopausal now, no periods for 3 years. They just suddenly stopped. No variation. I had one then a gap of 6 months, then one more, then nothing. I've had very few symptoms that can't be attributed to external factors (e.g. stressful events) I feel extremely lucky.

I’m 37 and trying to get a doctor to take me seriously when I talk about the incredible pain in my back and elbows and wrists which started happening a year ago during my period. And the sudden acne when I’ve not had it all my life. The incredible wave of emotion I feel the week before my period. Every time I’ve seen a doctor in the UK I feel like I’m being gaslighted and condemned for wasting their time with my appointment.

I am so sorry. I’m in the UK too. I had undiagnosed severe anaemia for 3 years. My doctor refused to do blood tests. I was given prescription after prescription of pills to treat the symptoms I was experiencing, when they didn’t work, my doctor decided that I was having viral infections back to back for years. This was caused by the hormonal contraceptive in my arm. Since having it put in, I would bleed non-stop. That surely should have given him a hint about what my problem was? Apparently bleeding profusely wasn’t a side-effect (he lied, it was). How doctors can be so negligent and uncaring? It’s unbelievable.

I went into menopause at 44, I'm 61 now. Went to my doc, they did a test, I was told I'm in menopause & that was it. No info, counselling, discussion about the effects, nada. Didn't even discuss HRT, which I didn't even know was a thing until years later. I've suffered mental health problems my entire life & I can say that menopause does make it worse, at times. It's like a freaking rollercoaster!

@lizrock1442 that's bullshit. If BHRT products make you feel better, use them. I found a great product which is OTC bhrt cream called Ostaderm. I don't take as much as the label says---I take just enough to be able to sleep well and not have black depression and extreme fatigue. It literally gave me my life back. Lately added 2 pea sized dabs of lowest dose DHEA cream I could find. DHEA is a precursor to lots of hormones including testosterone. Turns out that dry eye is related to loss of testosterone. That also helped considerably. I can see again! Without feeling like i have rocks in my eyes or them being goopy and runny and red and light sensitive.
