    Natalie Tyler is a care support worker at a children's hospice and has 2 teenage children.

    After a hysterectomy aged 36, Natalie experienced early menopause and talks openly about what that felt like at the time and how she got support.

    Natalie explains how she has adjusted her lifestyle alongside medication to reduce many of the difficult symptoms she first experienced.

    Please note we refer to people experiencing menopause, because not all those diagnosed with it identify as female.
