Real-life stories

Your individual and unique experiences of perimenopause and menopause.


Since creating The Latte Lounge in 2016, we have had the privilege to hear hundreds of womens’ perimenopause and menopause stories. 

While many of these stories are shared only via private messages and emails to our founder Katie Taylor, others are shared with our whole community in our video interviews and articles.

We share these menopause stories to show that no two experiences are alike. Everyone differs in age, number & scale of symptoms, genetic and cultural factors, and the treatments options we choose.

Us women will always have an individual and unique menopause story to share!

Would you like to share your experience to help others? Please do get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you.

In the meantime, here’s a selection of the perimenopause and menopause stories from our community:
