A tad excited — ‘Men…Let’s Talk Menopause’ is the title of the book I’ve put together after several years of giving talks up and down the country.

Another interesting and informative talk at the recent BMS conference was on Vulval health which was presented by the delightful Dr Kay McAllister who is based at Sandyford Glasgow – I know what a topic, discussed even less than vaginal health, but equally as important. Ok can we just get this down in black and white […]
Just attended another extremely informative BMS conference up in Stirling which you will be pleased to hear was packed with HCPs (health care professional) – predominantly GPs with a sprinkling of specialist nurses, sexual health practitioners and the like there too.

I recently asked her a few questions to hopefully give an insight into this topic. […]
Well it was only a matter of time before I got round to writing about the ‘V’ word, long overdue I know, but it’s hard to prioritise topics with the menopause, there are so many symptoms…this is however always on the top of my agenda when running the workshops as it has to be the […]

I was fortunate enough to recently meet Jackie Montgomery, the lead physiotherapist in obstetrics, gynaecology and pelvic floor services at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, when she spoke at one of the BMS seminars. Her talk was so inspirational, true to life and packed full with not only the most up to date […]
