MyMT™ Menopause Symptoms Quiz

MyMT™ Menopause Symptoms Quiz

What is the MyMT™ Menopause Symptom Quiz?

I’m Dr Wendy Sweet (PhD) a women’s healthy ageing educator from New Zealand. Welcome to my Symptoms Quiz which you can scroll down to below. When I founded My Menopause Transformation, I never imagined that starting a conversation about this stage of our lives would elicit so much interest from women around the world. But when I went into peri-menopause and experienced my first hot flushes, I didn’t understand what was happening. I also had no idea that my cardiac palpitations, mood swings, weight gain, sore joints and incredible fatigue had anything to do with arriving in mid-life.

That’s why I have my Menopause Symptoms Quiz for you derived from the 10-Item Cervantes Scale for assessment of menopause-related symptoms (Faustino et al. 2013).  If you aren’t sure if you are in menopause or you are in menopause and just want to see how you score and listen to my video, then please take a minute to do the quiz. Just scroll down and you will see it. 

Our mid-life years begin from our early 40’s right through to around 60 years old.  And during this time we are heading into our biological ageing. When we begin to lose oestrogen and progesterone there are changes that occur all over our bodies.  I never knew this, but it is all part of our natural ageing, however how we respond to this stage of life, feels quite ‘un-natural’. I was curious to understand why.

That’s why, once you have done the Quiz I have a video for you which will explain your score (and this depends on whether you are overweight or not). I also have my weekly complimentary newsletter which I would like to share with you each week too. Thank you for joining me on the MyMT™ Symptoms Quiz.

It only takes a minute of your time and when you watch my video where I explain your score to you, suddenly how you are feeling will make so much sense. It’s the information I wish I had known when I went into menopause myself.
