The Merry Menopause

EDUCATE. EMPOWER. SUPPORT

HI, I’m Jo Fuller, Menopause and Menstruation Coach and Educator. I am the founder of The Merry Menopause online community and host of
The Merry Menopause Bookclub Podcast 

 

My focus is on awareness and improvement of Perimenopause symptoms through Coaching and education. I want to help you break free of a passive relationship with your body and understand the powerful changes and limitless possibilities that your Menopause brings

 

Coaching takes you from where you are to where you want to be. A Coach supports you to move forward.

Menopause is a natural hormonal transition that every woman will experience. It is not an illness, it cannot be cured, but it can be managed.

 

So you know what a Coach is and what your Menopause is, what happens when we put the two together?

The Merry Menopause Bookclub Podcast has been nominated for a British Podcast Award 2022 in the Wellbeing category.

British podcast awards ‘listeners choice award’

"I first met Jo when she delivered a Menopause Awareness talk at my place of work. I stood at the back crying, everything Jo was saying was how I was feeling and what I was experiencing, I was struggling. I contacted Jo directly and committed to work with her on her ‘Re-Set’ programme. Jo helped me make sense of the way that I was and had been feeling. She talked me through how cycle tracking can help, I still have good days & bad days but I feel much more in control and I am kinder to myself on days that I know will be a struggle and I re-arrange important conversations to when I know I can smash it! I have taken back control of my Perimenopause. I can't recommend Jo and her programme highly enough."

Perimenopause Phase One 35-45

In your mid-30s, you are still producing enough hormones to give you good energy, skin, muscle tone and a sex drive, but subtle changes are happening in your ovaries as your egg supply starts to dwindle.

Perimenopause Phase Two 45-55

In phase two our hormone levels start to change dramatically and over time we stop having a regular menstrual cycle.


Our egg supply has shrunk, making pregnancy less likely but not impossible, beware!⠀

The Menopause

51-56

 

Your Menopause is ONE day, it is the very last of your last period, your last day of bleeding. 

Once you have a clear 12 months without a period you are in Post Menopause.

Post Menopause...

Our average life expectancy is 81 and the average age at which the Menopause occurs is 51!

So, that’s 30 years of life without sex hormones, which is almost a third of our lives.

Hi Jo, I wanted to reach out and say thank you for your work. I listened to your podcast for the first time yesterday and found it so inspiring. I'm a Menopausal, Senior Academic in the field of Work & Health, and I feel strongly that I need to use your platform to raise awareness around Menopause and empower working women. Your work boosts my confidence, I can do this!

If in your early to mid-40s you start to experience anxiety, disturbed sleep, memory loss, inexplicable aches and pains, you are not suffering from mental health issues or chronic physical illness, you are most likely experiencing some of the many symptoms of the Perimenopause or the Menopause.

 

The Merry Menopause wants to help women. To let women know that they are not alone. The Perimenopause and the Menopause are no longer taboo subjects, but we need to open up the conversation if we are going to understand our symptoms.

Awareness of the changes to our mental and physical health will benefit us enormously. With the right information and the right support we are able to make informed choices as to how we can manage this natural and unavoidable change in our lives.

 

For The Merry Menopause community to build it needs active members. Members to be vulnerable and ask for help, to share how they are feeling and to offer comforting words, reassurance and good advice to each other. 

When we are vulnerable we can start a conversation and when we start talking, our symptoms don’t go away, but we can start to feel much better.
 
Showing vulnerability is not a negative thing, it shows strength and a willingness to want to feel better.
 
Welcome to The Merry Menopause, it’s not just about hormones, it’s about connecting, wellbeing and enjoying life even when it gets tough. Women everywhere, I invite you to join the conversation.
