Today we are joined by Dr Angela Wright, a BMS Advanced Menopause Specialist & Menopause Trainerwho is particularly interested in improving sexual function and menopausal symptoms in women who have undergone cancer treatment.
Angela talks about addressing the patient as a whole body, in a holistic way, incorporating mental and emotional health into a person’s physical healing and recovery.
As a Fellow of the European Committee of Sexual Medicine (FECSM), Angela is at the forefront of treatment options and talks about a new drug, currently not readily available everywhere but through some specialist doctors. It gives hope and knowledge that things are moving in the right direction.
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.
