Rachel Lankester, 53, originally from Birmingham, went through early menopause at 41. She’s since set up a business and online community dedicated to helping women celebrate life post-40.

“If we’re told anything about menopause, we’re taught to fear it. We’re taught that older women lose their value with their fertility – our society worships youth and the fertility that goes along with it,” she says. ”[But] there’s so much to like about being post-menopause. No more periods. No pregnancy risk. No more pre-menstrual tension. Off the oestrogen roller-coaster. More able to prioritise ourselves rather than being driven to nurture everyone else. More confident and secure in our skin.”

Rachel’s advice: If you’re feeling daunted by the prospect of menopause ask yourself why. Is it because you’ve heard it’s always a nightmare and life is all downhill from there, that you’ll no longer be a vibrant, sexy, beautiful woman and you’ll fade into obscurity? Choose not to believe that rubbish!”
