“It’s just normal pain – you’ll have to get on with it..”

There are times when you feel so beaten down you couldn’t possibly challenge the doctor….

Diane Danzebrink speaking on Roberto Perrone’s show on BBC Three Counties Radio. The segment starts around 15 minutes into the show.

MP Nadine Dorries  had said women are often fobbed off by a doctor, do not push back and are very easily dismissed. They do not feel they can challenge and need to be “more empowered” .

Di told the radio audience that healthcare professionals would be better in recognising women’s health conditions if they were better taught, and offers advice to those sufferers who find difficulty in getting the correct advice from their GP.

She said men worried about their partners or loved ones suffering from menopause symptoms could find advice on this website.
