Anna can really relate to this week’s dilemma - it comes from a woman who’s severely struggling with her perimenopause symptoms and is asking why it seems to be so much harder for some women than others.
So, Anna has called on the expert sports broadcaster and host of The Mid.Point podcast
, Gabby Logan
, to share her sage advice. With the assistance of TV doctor extraordinaire, Dr Ellie Cannon
, Anna and Gabby share anecdotes from their own perimenopause and suggest some of the tips and tricks that have helped them navigate this aspect of their mid-life journeys. The trio discuss the medical options available to those dealing with difficult menopause symptoms, highlight the importance of caring for and understanding our bodies as we grow older, and consider the value of naming and identifying the menopause to our families, friends and colleagues.
To hear more from Gabby on the subject of mid-life, you can listen to her brilliant podcast The Mid.Point

Have questions about sex? Divorce? Motherhood? Menopause? Mental health? With no topic off limits, Anna’s here to prove that whatever you’re going through, it’s not just you.
