‘There should be no shame or stigma attached to the menopause, it’s part of life. I talk to my girls about every aspect, so they’ll know what they could go through when it’s their turn.’ Tracey Bessell, South Lanarkshire
‘Why is there a stigma attached to something that’s just natural for women? I think it’s really good that celebrities have openly discussed the menopause. It gets everyone else talking and helps to break down taboos. It baffles me why the menopause is a taboo, anyway.’ Gemma Carrick, Sunderland
‘I’ve had awful hot flushes and my brain seems permanently foggy. I’m also more tired and irritable and have painful joints. It’s good that the menopause is being talked about more, because people need to know it’s not just a case of a few hot flushes or something to be made fun of.’ Ann Johnson, Cheshire
