MyMT™ Menopause Symptoms Quiz

MyMT™ Menopause Symptoms Quiz

Do you know if you’re in peri menopause, menopause or post menopause?”

  • Do you reach for a fan when everyone else puts on a jumper?
  • Can’t remember the last time you slept 8 hours?
  • Are you putting on weight and can’t work out why?
  • Do you find yourself struggling with joint pain and inflammation?
  • Did you know that our mid-life years begin from our early 40’s right through to around 60?

We understand how complicated and frustrating this “stage” of life can be. Mid-life is a time of massive change for women, but the information available is either complex or too good to be true.

That is why I have created the MyMT™ Menopause Symptom Quiz. This free quiz will help you understand what stage of “the change” you are at.

The MyMT™ Menopause Symptoms Quiz is derived from the 10-Item Cervantes Scale for assessing menopause-related symptoms (Faustino et al., 2013). It is not a marketing tool to sell you supplements. It is a tool to help you determine what and where to focus your efforts with your symptoms. After all, when our teenagers struggle with adolescence, we don’t think of them as sick, so why do we treat Menopause as an illness?

Prioritise the issues to help you take control of the symptoms and take back control of your life.

I’m Dr Wendy Sweet (PhD), a women’s healthy ageing educator from New Zealand. When I first started exploring the symptoms of Menopause, I was surprised to learn how few health professionals understood what was happening to women’s health. 

Over 50% of the population will experience menopause, but so little was known. This spurred me to undertake a research-based PhD on the topic of women’s ageing. The Symptoms Quiz was one of the first tools I created, and it is the foundation of my education platform, My Menopause Transformation (MyMT)

Welcome to my Symptoms Quiz. Just scroll down and you will see it below. 

When I founded My Menopause Transformation in 2016, I never imagined that starting a conversation about this stage of our lives would elicit so much interest from women worldwide. But like many women, 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.

Menopause and its symptoms are all part of our natural ageing. However, how we respond to this stage of life feels quite ‘unnatural’. Diets, Hormone Replacement Therapy, and Supplements may all have a place in your journey, but you need to understand the full picture.
