Celebs on Menopause - Body shape changes
« on: November 07, 2021, 11:15:41 AM »

Great to see celebrities using there platform to talk about menopause over the last few months but I was really happy to read Ruth Langsford talk about an issue I have difficulty with and have posted about before the changes to body shape and boobs. My weight has redistributed which has left my boobs huge but i am also bigger in general which I think is my metabolism.

Hi - my apron dropped years ago.  Lack of oestrogen made the belly muscles lax ......... laying down it's fine, walking around I feel bigger and look fatter.

I'm waiting for the first celebrity to mention Virginal Atrophy.
I had never heard of this condition until just recently when I started to suffer from it at 72. I've probably had this condition for years but had no idea what it was until it got unbearable with resulting UTI's.

Yes, its good that celebrities are highlighting their menopausal symptoms, it will all help because there is so much ignorance of the subject.

Are there many postmenopausal "celebrities", though, especially those well into their 60s and 70s who have not had replacement therapy for a long time? Many of us in this age group were bullied off what we needed more than ever due to the misinformed "research" of the early 2000s. Some of us, and I include myself, may never have bodies capable of coping with such a radical re-introduction of what have become, agonisingly, foreign substances? I feel this is a huge topic with great scope for debate and exploration! 🤔

Yes Postmeno3 - I suspect many celebrities simply paid out and went private and found somebody to prescribe HRT for them. 

Gracie - I laughed when I read your post.  I suspect we won't hear from many celebrities admitting to vaginal atrophy.  Plenty will be happy to mention their increased breast size I'm sure!

Sorry just seen your reply. I am sure meg matthews and michelle heaton have discussed there vaginal atrophy as both have been pioneers of discussing going through tge menopause.

But I do agree the increase breast size is probably a topic more feel comfortable taking about as its been in the media  most  recently due to the actress Salma Hayek talking about her experiences on a podcast.

Although lets not forget many women dont want bigger boobs and suffer a lot of pain.

With kate middleton turning 40 wonder if she will talk about her menopause over the next decade

Hello ladies.

The only celeb I have really noticed is Carol Vorderman.  Her figure is seriously pre meno so I assume that she is HRT'd up to her ears lol!

Take care everyone.

I did a search and found an article by Meg Matthews discussing her menopause problems. Written in predictable celebrity rock and roll style as she talked about her raging sex life before the menopause and her gynaecologist mentioning to her “yes, flat  fannies are definitely a thing”, she must be on very close terms with her gynae!!

I really couldn’t read anymore and she has made a business selling products for menopausal women some of which are not recommended by doctors.
The life of the celebrity living in a whole new universe compared to the rest of us!
