Tracy Minnoch-Nuku, is the founder of Sexy Ageing. I asked Tracy to join me in a conversation about midlife shaming because I had never heard of it and was quite shocked to learn that some women are shamed by others for how they choose to manage their menopause journey.
Tracy’s goal is to create a community and information space for women who have questions and can’t find the answers to the effects that hormonal changes have on you. Tracey readily admits that she is NOT a doctor or an expert on hormonal health BUT knows people who are, and she connects people to those resources. Tracy also hosts a podcast of the same name, Sexy Ageing, and speaks with incredibly inspirational women who are experiencing the changes, happy to share, and making their dreams come true into their 50’s and beyond. On the podcast you will find an incredible panel of speakers (me included!), please follow the links below: www.sexyageing.com Instagram: @sexyageing
What is your menopause journey? Are you choosing to ride it out au natural because you don’t know what support is available or you’ve decided to go down the path of HRT? At the time of this podcast, I am not on HRT and only because myself and my GP feel I don’t need it at this stage. I have experienced a stage of intense brain fog where I couldn’t remember things, my concentration was poor and I felt out of kilter. My blood results picked up my thyroid was underactive and I have commenced medication which had an almost instant effect. I continue to monitor my menopause journey and feel fortunate that I have a very supportive and progressive GP (and a wonderful supportive partner). If you’re not feeling supported by your GP, I urge you to speak up to them and if needed, find yourself a new one.
Thanks for tuning in! Please like and share the love.
All the best, Susan, The Maven
