Just read an article about Carol vorderman menopause
« on: April 14, 2019, 08:30:04 PM »

Just read this article about Carol Vorderman.  She's said that she had a horrendous time with her menopause symptoms,  and felt sucidal. She went to see Pfof Studd and was prescribed bioidentical hormones in a gel.  She said within two days she was  back to normal. What are they ? and are they only available privately.?  :)

Put bio-identical into the search box on here ;-)

Then let us know.  Within 2 days?   ::)

I think that whoever wrote the article probably used the term bioidentical but the correct term is body identical. They're 2 different things and often get confused. I think the gel is most likely oestrogel which is body identical and something that professor studd does prescribe and is also available on the NHS via your gp. Lots of ladies here use it.

Professor studd is unlikely to prescribe bio identical hormones as they are unregulated.

Think I remember reading somewhere that she uses Oestrogel (estrogen gel) and Utrogestan (progesterone) - available on NHS.  Carol is fortunate in immediately finding a regime that suited (I'm in the small minority who tried many years of trial and error but never found the 'right fit' HRT).  She does look good - must be down to genetics too.

Well, try googling Carol Vorderman in her early days, and look at her now. If HRT can make a woman look like that, then we wouldn't need cosmetic surgeons. She's had it all lifted, plumped and prettied. Her eye wrinkles have disappeared in the last six months as well!
I like Carol, and i think going on telly and telling the nation that diminishing hormones left her feeling suicidally depressed, means she gets a cheer from me. But there is no way on this planet that her amazingly voluptous figure is down to oestrogen gel and utrogestan pills.  :D

And if I had her money, I would do exactly the same. I'd be out there flashing my giant bazookas and bouncy round bum like you wouldn't believe.  :)
