2021 was a great year for talkhealth and we topped it off with a feature in the November issue of Healthy Life Guide!
Menopause has always been a vital topic at talkhealth. Over the years, we have worked to help women identify, manage and overcome the symptoms of the change. Debunking myths and ensuring women are well equipped with the best advice is a key part of this.
That’s why, when we heard about our feature in the Healthy Life Guide last month, we couldn’t wait to share the news with you.
Named ‘Hot and Bothered’, the talkhealth feature spotlights the debilitating effects of menopause whilst also presenting staggering statistics about female experiences and care. The article, which is written way that makes the topic accessible to you, traverses the entire menopause journey from symptoms to treatments.
Backed by statistics that we collected in our January 2020 Menopause survey, the inclusion directly addresses the topics that are most important to you, our members. In doing so, it provides a relatable touchpoint for women who are hindered by menopausal symptoms like hot flushes, mental health issues, vaginal dryness and lack of sleep.
The article gives some much-needed air time to the struggles that women face when accessing care for menopausal symptoms. By highlighting the wide-felt anxiety to confide with male doctors, lack of referrals for specialised care and issues with HRT, the feature brings some of the issues that women face every day to the fore.
