The Menopause Q&A with Dr Marilyn Glenville (Video)

menopause weight gainInterview by Ceri Wheeldon

When I posted that I was going to interview Dr Marilyn Glenville about the menopause I was inundated with questions from readers.

Scroll down to video.

In addition to hot flushes and night sweats other questions included:

How long should the menopause last?

How long do hot flushes last?

Is there a second menopause?

How long should you take HRT?

How to avoid/cure insomnia?

How to cope with mood swings?

Reasons for excess hair.

Stress and the menopause.

Joint pain during menopause.

What causes fatigue during the menopause and how to manage it.

Dr Marilyn Glenville answers all of these questions on the menopause – and more in the video.


Marilyn has written some really comprehensive books on the topic of the menopause that I can highly recommend:
Natural Solutions to Menopause: How to stay healthy before, during and beyond the menopause

Fat Around the Middle: How to Lose That Bulge – For Good

Healthy Eating for the Menopause

In other videos we have specifically covered weight gain during the menopause  the pros and cons of HRT and managing hot flushes and night sweats
