From understanding more about the importance of good nutrition during the menopause to gaining advice that helps you keep healthy and active, GOPO® Joint Health is inviting you to share your questions with Dr Anne Henderson to help you understand how and why you may start to notice physiological changes.

Here’s what GOPO® Joint Health has to say: “Ahead of Menopause Awareness Day next month, GOPO® Joint Health has teamed up with Menopause Specialist, Anne Henderson, and invites the Gransnet community to share your menopause related questions.

GOPO® Joint Health is committed to helping the Nation feel limber at any age, and encourages a healthy and active lifestyle. GOPO® Joint Health is a health food supplement that contains 100% specially cultivated natural rose-hip with a high level of the galactolipid compound known as GOPO®, a key component of rose-hip which may play a valuable role in the care of joints and joint tissues. It is rich in Vitamin C which contributes to the formation of collagen for the normal function of cartilage, the protective and connective component of joints.”

If you're either in the midst of the menopause or perhaps already out the other end but still have some questions, this is your opportunity to find out more. Please post your questions on the thread below and we will choose approximately 15 questions for Dr Henderson to answer in w/c 19th October. Everyone who posts their questions will be entered into a prize draw where 1 lucky GNer will win a £100 voucher for a store of their choice (from a list).

Thanks and good luck

Having gone through the menopause in my mid 40's I am still experiencing symptoms over 15 years later.

I have noticed since menopause that I have become way more sensitive to insect bites and now get severe swelling and itching. Is there any correlation?

Does the menopause cause symptoms similar to PMDD?

Since I went through the menopause my hair has become very thin, to the extent you can see the scalp through the hair. Would GOPO® Joint Health help with this problem?

I am 37 and for the last year, my periods have went from really heavy to nothing at all. I sweat really badly during the night and sometimes during the day too. Could this be the start of early menopause?

Can you actually not notice at all when you have the menopause?

Nongranny - Can you actually not notice at all when you have the menopause

Told by my local "Well Woman's Clinic" 70% of women have no symptoms at all. Delighted to tell you, I am one of them. Periods stopped at 49 - job done thank goodness!
