She has since been vocal about her experiences with menopause in a bid to help other women going through similar situations.

Patsy recently admitted she hopes the next generation of women will be more prepared for the menopause when it comes

Sy het gese: ‘My commitment is to bridge the divide between pre and postmenopausal women, who historically have felt as if we have nothing in common.








‘As a younger woman, I had no idea what was coming, but now I’m proud to be sharing information to educate and inform women of all ages about how to manage this transition without fear or prejudice.

Sy het bygevoeg: ‘If I have any advice, 'Ek was 'n bietjie jammer vir myself toe ek besef: be honest about what you’re going through.

‘Half of all humans will face the menopause, there’s nothing to be ashamed of, and the more we give one another understanding and honesty, the more we’ll all benefit.
