We're taking a detour from regular programming today to discuss a subject that is still considered taboo in many cultures. It used to be referred to as “change of life” when I was growing up and it certainly wasn't discussed in public. Now it's known as the M word.

While we're happier to have an open conversation about perimenopause and menopause there's still very little information around that's digestible or helpful. The rabbit hole that is Dr Google can be misleading and symptoms can be mistaken for other health issues. As someone who is in the menopause years, I can attest to the feelings of loneliness and frustration as weight gain, hair loss, night sweats, constant tiredness and mood swings took hold.

Today's guest Shelly Horton is a presenter on Channel Nine, writer for Nine Honey and one of Australia's favourite MCs. Shelly is also the founder of Shellshocked Media. She's outgoing, fun and full of energy. So it was a shock to fans when she began to share her journey with Peri, her symptoms, struggles and those raw behind the scenes moments that most of us would rather keep private. 

In this episode we're diving into the M word; the symptoms, treatments and unexpected rollercoaster that is perimenopause.
