Listen to our podcast episode: Menopause and mental health part 2, Maddy

In the second episode of our podcast series on menopause, our podcast host Rosie speaks to Maddy about her experience of menopause and the effect it had on her mental health.

This episode explores the ways that menopause can affect younger people. Maddy talks about going through an induced temporary medical menopause at 22 as a treatment for endometriosis.

Rosie and Maddy talk about mental health struggles and feelings of flatness, reproductive illness and its relation to gender and the importance of sex education in schools covering menopause.

The conversation ends with Maddy suggesting that listeners experiencing menopause try to talk about it. Sharing our feelings and experience of menopause can help us to feel less alone, and also reduce stigma around the subject.
