Did you know there is something called “menopause rage” ?
Today we have Vanessa Ford back on the show to do the second episode discussing the perimenopausal/menopausal transition. If you missed last week’s episode make sure to go back and listen to that first, it’s full of amazing information. Today, Vanessa shares with us that the average age of menopause is 51 so if you can have perimenopause for 7-13 years that means you can start having symptoms in your late 30s’. Menopause technically is when you don’t have a period for 12 months consecutively, so if you start your period within that timeframe that means you start all over again before you can say you are in menopause. Vanessa who is cofounder of Menolabs, was prompted to action when, at 44 she had a period that lasted 3 weeks! Unsatisfied with the lack of support that women experience during this stage of life, and finding the stereotypes of women in mid-life exasperating and insulting, she created MenoLabs to address what she sees as a glaring need in every woman’s life.

Vanessa knew she needed to do something about this topic because there is severe lack of research into perimenopause and menopause, despite the fact that it affects all women:
• 25 million women in the United States are in the menopause transition
• 6,000 women enter this transition in the United States every single day.
• Millennials, America’s largest generation, started turning 40 last year, the
prime decade for menopause symptoms to begin.
• Worldwide, there will be 1 million women in menopause in the next 5 years.
So if you are finding yourself not sleeping, losing hair, gaining weight, having acne, dry skin or mood swings you could possibly be experiencing perimenopause symptoms and not even realize it. One topic that really stood out to me is how important it is to make sure your gut microbiome is healthy to help reduce perimenopausal/menopausal symptoms ! Hear what she has to say about this topic and more on the podcast.
