    What Is Perimenopause With Dr Louise Newson

    Perimenopause seems to be a bit of a buzzword at the moment and I had no idea that it could last so long. I was so thrilled to have Dr Louise Newson, the absolute guru on the pod this week who answered all the questions I had on HRT, hormones, migraines, contraception and her relationship with Davina McCall. I hope you find it as helpful as I did.
