Early menopause isn’t something a woman dreams of. However, everybody treats the inevitable age-related changes differently. Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, for example, has recently expressed herself due to the early symptoms of the transition.
In November 2018, 46-year-old Hollywood actress confessed that she had the first menopause symptoms, which caused unpleasant changes in her body shape and emotional condition.
She became irritable and didn’t feel as good as before.
When you get into perimenopause, you notice a lot of changes. I can feel hormonal shifts happening, the moods, you’re all of a sudden furious for no reason.
According to the award-winning actress, menopause is a real punishment for women.
I remember when my mother (Blythe Danner) went through menopause and it was such a big deal, and I think there was grief around it for her and all these emotions.
Gwyneth is confident that it is time to change attitudes in society towards this natural process:
I don’t think we have in society a great example of an aspirational menopausal woman.
To help women over 40 live through the inevitable changes in their lives, Gwyneth Paltrow launched a special project on Goop called Madame Ovary. Here you can find a series of articles and products for women who have entered premenopause.
The best way to deal with the enemy is to tame it, not so?
