There are plenty of resources available to help you with information about perimenopauseOne of the many things that can be difficult about perimenopause is finding the information you want and need – trustworthy, easy to understand and friendly.

The sheer volume of information out there is overwhelming: where do you start? who do you ask? Friends can be a great source of information and support but for some women there’s still an element of discomfort in talking about perimenopause and menopause.

So this week I figured I’d share just a few of the resources I’ve found helpful. The list below is by no means exhaustive but it’s a good place to start.

If you’d like help turning what you learn into healthy new habits (exercise, diet, stress, weight loss, life balance etc) wellness & lifestyle coaching can help.

Facebook Groups
Safe, nurturing women-only spaces (usually with a great sense of humour) where you can share experiences with people who “get” what you’re going through. If you’re not into Facebook you can try online forums.

Websites

Books

AppsNote: I haven’t tried these apps, but plan to. So far, I’ve been using Period Tracker to track symptoms and cycles.

Let me know about the books, websites and other resources you’ve found helpful and I’ll share some of them (anonymously) on the site and in my weekly newsletter.
