Appearing on This Morning, Carol Vorderman, 61, spoke candidly about how she felt 'suicidal at times' and experienced a 'deep depression' during menopause, but felt normal again 48 hours after having HRT.
CAROL VORDERMAN: Well, I started properly in my early 50s. I didn't have the go-- I've got night sweats, hot flash. I didn't have any of that. I started feeling anxious. I've never felt anxious in my life. I've run companies. I do all sorts of different things. And I started feeling anxious, even about what trousers I was going to wear. Was I going to have a tea or coffee?
That developed in to a deep depression. But what saved me really-- and I mean a deep depression. I felt suicidal at times for many months. I kept a note of when my period started in my electronic calendar. And that helped me analyze that. I started on a bespoke HRT. And within 48 hours, literally within two days, I felt back to normal. And I have never had a symptom since, never. It is wonderful.
