Femarelle® Taking Back Control Campaign. #TakingBackControl
Hello friends. On Tuesday I had an early start when I set my alarm for 5 am to get ready for Brunch in London for the Femarelle® launch event and to find out more about their Taking Back Control campaign.
The talk was hosted by early menopause survivor Michelle Heaton and Professor Andrea Genazzani. The Femarelle® #takingbackcontrol campaign is supported by Michelle and leading experts.
After an early morning drive into Nottingham, a couple of hours on the train to London and finally 15 minutes on the Tube I was at Tower Hill enjoying the sights and sounds of a rush hour London. I was feeling very excited to be invited along with everyone to the Ivy Tower Bridge.
The event talked about how Femarelle® can help 75% of the 13 million UK women currently going through the menopause.
To be honest, before this week the menopause had not really crossed my mind. Something that you imagine is far away in your future. I think the menopause is something a lot of women put off learning and looking into. Believing ignorance is best. I have not been through it, so I don’t need to know about it was my attitude.
However, as a woman in my mid 40’s it really is something I should know about, but it is a subject that is never talked about in social circles. This event has made me take ownership of the subject and after a bit of research, I was surprised at what changes your body can have with the menopause and all the things I have got to look forward too, Not…
Eyes have been opened!
Read on to see how my day went.
We were invited into The Tower View Private Room at The Ivy Tower Bridge on the first floor and the views were breathtaking.
Imagine seeing this view every morning!! I could get used to this.
Breakfast is served. I cannot resist pastries and these were so yummy.
Love smoothies but which one to pick? I chose the strawberry one, so yummy.
This eggs benedict was truly amazing. I might have to visit again to take my Husband for breakfast sometime soon.
Over brunch, onto business Professor Andrea Genazzani talked about how your body changes over the menopause and how Femarelle® can help these side effects. I did not realise the average woman in the UK starts to go through menopause between the ages of 48-52.
Some signs of Menopause:
- Racing heart.
- Hot flushes.
- Mood swings.
- Painful sex.
- Lower sex drive.
- Vaginal dryness and soreness.

Michelle Heaton, the 38-year-old singer and author of ‘Hot Flush – Motherhood the Menopause and Me’, shared her own menopause story and is urging women to start taking back control from when they get their first symptoms.
Her story was very moving and I really enjoyed hearing about her take on the menopause. Someone in the public eye who shares less flattering stories about themselves with the media to help and advice others is inspirational. Thank you, Michelle.
Professor Andrea Genazzani is calling on all women to not suffer in silence and take back control of their lives. He talked about sex and the menopause, from how to enjoy intimacy due to loss of libido to vaginal dryness and how Femarelle can help you when you are going through the menopause.
Michelle Heaton supports Femarelle’s® ‘Taking Back Control’ campaign:
- Former Liberty X singer, Michelle Heaton, is supporting a new campaign to help raise awareness of the estimated 13 million women in UK who are going through the menopause.
- The 40-year-old is an early menopause survivor after having a double mastectomy and hysterectomy to reduce her risk of cancer and is now campaigning to inspire other women on how to tackle the challenges of the menopause head-on.
- The TV presenter has now teamed up with Femarelle®, the only food supplement that has DT56a, an ingredient developed using soy derivatives.
Just two capsules a day of this vitamin-enriched supplement is used by women, whatever their life stage and now Femarelle® is launching its ‘Taking Back Control’ initiative aimed at helping women talk about the menopause and the products available to them.
Michelle Says “I have been taking Femarelle and have been delighted with the results I have seen myself, so it was the perfect opportunity when they asked me to support their new ‘Taking Back Control’ initiative,”
“It’s all about encouraging women to be open about their experiences on how the menopause can affect you. I’m particularly keen to spread the message to younger women like myself in their forties who do not realise this could be the start of their menopause journey and there are things that they can do.”
Femarelle has been studied in nine clinical trials1, with the largest trial on over 2000 women.2 There are 13 million women in the UK who are currently going through the menopause3.
I had a really good day at the Femarelle® Taking Back Control event and learned a lot about the menopause.
Femarelle® is a product I would be interested in trying out when I reach the menopause. Especially if I suffer all the symptoms. I do have a fear of taking tablets though so I would be interested to see if this range comes out in powder form!?
If you think you are going through the menopause yourself I would advise you to ask your GP for advice or speak to the pharmacist at the chemist to advise you if you are thinking of trying Femarelle®. They will help you decide if you would like to take it with HRT or instead of.
