Shownotes

Georgie is a body confidence influencer who shares her own experience of cancer in her early 20s very openly. And although her intense life-saving stem cell transplant left her infertile no one mentioned the menopause to her. So it’s fair to say she was very much left in the dark.

Was the menopause mentioned to you by your doctors?

And if so, was it the right time in your treatment?

And were you aware of quite how much the menopause would impact you even years after your active treatment finished?

Georgie and I also talk about how cuddling and kissing can come to a halt as we fear it might lead to the next thing. 

Loss of libido is so very real!

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.
