Davina McCall says ‘do not wait’ and ‘soldiering on is pointless’ to girls contemplating HRT – it is given me the push I wanted

Final night time, Davina McCall posted a video message about HRT on Instagram, and it is acquired lots of people pondering – myself included. The TV presenter’s New Yr message was geared toward girls who’ve been fighting perimenopause signs, and open to taking HRT, however who’re placing it off, for no matter motive. And it actually resonated with me. 

I’ll quickly flip 44, and within the final 12 months have been to my GP greater than as soon as to debate why I simply do not feel ‘proper’, for no obvious motive. Neither time has the topic of perimenopause come up, and requested instantly if it may very well be a chance, I am met with imprecise solutions and an apparent lack of want to discover it. As an alternative signs are put down principally to emphasize, and I have been despatched away after being advised to observe what I consider to be perimenopause signs. Every time I’ve left feeling pissed off that the prognosis is mistaken, and finally will probably be discovered I may benefit from HRT.
