In a recent poll in my private Facebook group, I asked our members to tick all the symptoms they associate with being in menopause after cancer. I plan to address these one by one over the next few months with all my amazing experts on the podcast.

Today, I am joined by Dr. Phillippa Kaye, who is a London based GP with over a decade of experience. Together we will explore what came out at the very top of the poll: HOT FLUSHES + BRAIN FOG

Philippa has a special interest and further training in women’s health, children’s health and sexual health. She is also the author of The M word - everything you need to know about the menopause, she is a journalist, broadcaster on national TV and a mother. 

The second edition of The M word is out now. Here is the link to the book:

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
