Amy Fleming is way too young to be going through menopause, but her attitude about it would outshine many of her much older peers.
She was just 27 when a series of painful issues landed her in the hospital multiple times, and ultimately found out that she was going through primary ovarian insufficiency (POI, which I accidentally call "premature" in the intro) and ultimately, premature menopause. Now, at 29, she's sharing her experiences, raising awareness for the #makemenopausematter campaign, changing the face of menopause and smashing the taboo for old or younger people to educate themselves on this inevitable life transition.
Find out how she's managed to put purpose to her pain and is helping others do the same.
• How she finally got the right diagnosis
• How her peers and fiance (now husband) reacted
• Finding the right HRT path
• What lifestyle adjustments work best
• How she handled the psychological impact of such an unexpected event
• Her advice for others who are going through this
• How to best advocate for yourself in this situation
• The most helpful resources
Fact check: Women do not make more testosterone than men, we make more testosterone than estrogen.
