Women supporting women is one of our mantras here at MPowered Women. Which is why we’ve launched our menopause forum, Women With Ambition, Attitude & Brain Fog. The community is a private Facebook group, packed with medical and wellbeing resources, offering the support and camaraderie of women who know exactly what you’re going through.
What are the top 10 signs of menopause?
With so many questions surrounding menopause, it’s very important that we give our community medical information from experts. We are lucky to have one of the UK’s leading menopause specialists, Dr Stephanie Goodwin, as one of our medical advisors.
Every month, Dr Steph will be hosting a Facebook live Midlife Health & Menopause Clinic for our private Facebook group community. Only the members of the group will be able to join. Even better you’ll be able to ask questions in advance to ensure that you really benefit from Dr Steph’s expertise.
What are the worst symptoms of menopause?
Who better to ask what they’ve found the worst symptoms of menopause than fellow members of a menopause forum who are living through it? For some of us, it’s the anxiety and loss of confidence. For others, it’s the hot flushes and night sweats. What is clear is that every woman’s menopause is different, but we can all support each other through it.
Whether you want to hear another woman’s experience of HRT, or find out what the best alcohol-free drinks are now that you’ve discovered wine is no longer your friend (something we hear from our community a lot), you’ll find a group of women happy to chat.
Why do I feel so bad during menopause?
Sometimes you just need to share your experiences with other women so that you feel seen and heard. Or you might want to research what are the most common menopause symptoms and what is causing them? Why are your moods so up and down? Does anyone else have daily feelings of doom? We’ve posted helpful articles in the menopause forum that will help you understand what your body is going through.

What does menopause anxiety feel like?
Anxiety is the secret symptom of menopause. So many of us expected hot flushes and night sweats, but didn’t know anything about the mental health menopause symptoms that would hit. Whether it’s a loss of confidence in the work place, a depression that we can’t shake or even a new-found fear of driving, perimenopause and menopause anxiety is very real.
Trust us, your fellow community members will understand what you’re going through and can share how they are managing their symptoms.
Will I ever feel normal again after menopause?
Yes, yes, yes. Here at MPowered, we think that midlife is a brilliant time for women. We are confident, we are sassy, we know what we want – and what we don’t want. We don’t put up with the sh** that our younger selves tolerated. But… the symptoms and their impact are real, and we don’t ever want to sugarcoat them. For many women, menopause is a difficult and upsetting time, and we are here to support you through it.
Please do join our menopause forum and be a part of the conversation. If you have ambition, attitude and brain fog, then this is the support group for you. We can’t wait to see you there.
