I was giving a talk recently and I was reminded again about how little we women sometimes know about our own bodies.
Why is our hormonal health such a mystery
So I did a little research on this lack of information
I found the answer: This is the page from the Irish ...Leaving Cert Biology book.
(So the Leaving Cert is the final state exam we do before college in Ireland)
There is no mention of perimenopause or postmenopause at all.
Menopause gets a one-line mention "The menopause is the time at which the reproductive life of a female ends."
So it's time to start sharing our knowledge, your hormonal system is amazing and deserves to be acknowledged.
If we are informed we know when something is not right and can then work on addressing it and caring for our hormones as we would any other part of our body
