Best Menopause Podcasts to Listen to in 2023
Many people are still reluctant to talk about menopause. Your mom and grandma might have referred to it with strange euphemisms like “the change.”
This leaves you to figure out this major live event on your own, which can be difficult.
But why shy away from the truth? It’s a fact of life for half of the world’s population, after all. Menopause is something every woman will experience eventually, and there’s no need to feel embarrassed or ashamed to discuss it openly.
Fortunately, podcasts are here to help! They can offer advice and support and—best of all—knowledge. Typically, these types of podcasts are run by women who don’t shy away from telling it like it is.
While podcasts are not a substitute for medical advice, they can help you understand more about this stage of life. Once the topics are on your radar, you can ask your healthcare provider better questions.
Here is a list of the best menopause podcasts to listen to in 2023.
