The Truth About The Menopause
Write it on a Post-It note, put it in your diary, set a reminder on your phone. Tonight on BBC1 at nine o’clock, broadcaster and journalist Mariella Frostrup investigates the menopause, talks to experts and shares her own sleep-deprived experience. One of the guests is Myra Hunter emeritus professor of clinical health psychology at King’s College London, who I interviewed for my recent feature, ‘Five things I’ve discovered about the menopause‘.
‘Given that life expectancy for women is now almost 83 years, it’s astonishing that perception of successful females should still be tied up with our ability to procreate. People don’t walk around saying, ‘You can’t have babies, you’re finished’, but it’s implicit,’ Frostrup has said.
