Well, it’s been a few months since I received the Ladycare Magnet and I have to confess that it’s been sat in the box it came in all that time.
Well, I guess I was a bit sceptical. If I was 100% sure it would work I would probably have used it straight away. But I wasn’t sure.
Secondly, I was annoyed that I would have to have this thing in the front of my knickers all the time.
Wearing the Magnet 24/7
I found this even more irritating when I realised that to get the full benefits of the magnet, I would have to wear it at night. I must confess, I like to sleep in the nude because it is so comfortable. The thought of having to wear knickers at night to hold this magnet in place was a big obstacle for me and so I procrastinated…
Too Many Hot Flushes Later I Had to Try It!
The past couple of months or so I’ve been suffering hugely from hot flushes and quite frankly it’s really been getting on my tits!
Some days I’ve been hardly able to work. This might seem like an exaggeration but I think you’ll understand if you are a fellow sufferer. You know the feeling you get when the hot flush is starting – before you even feel hot. It’s like a wave that creeps upon you. You know it’s coming and you are going to be swallowed up by it but there is nothing you can do.
My heart starts to beat faster, I almost feel a sense of panic, I begin to warm up and a wave of exhaustion overtakes me. Quite honestly, it makes me want to sit down and cry. My energy is gone and I feel cross. I become moody and irritable and this keeps happening throughout the day.
I remember feeling glad when my periods stopped. I thought “Woohoo! No more monthly worries!” but this is so much worse!
The day came, actually, Saturday 4 November, when I’d had enough. This monster by the name of “Menopause” was not going to take over my life!.
The Ladycare Magnet Comes Out of Its Box
I unpacked my magnet and attached it to my knickers (well, thong). I wondered if it was in the right position or was it too low on my belly to take effect?
The first couple of days didn’t make any difference and my cynical self thought it was probably a waste of money.
And on The 3rd Day!
However, on around the 3rd and 4th day (Tuesday and today) I’m beginning to feel that the hot flushes have reduced.
I’ve had quite a bit of stress lately and I find that when I sit down to work, I get a bit anxious and the hot flushes are worst at that point. However, this isn’t happening now and I’ve got a ton of work done over the last couple of days.
I’ve even bought some nice M&S pants (the shorts type) for wearing in bed because they are so much more comfy than a thong! They do have some redeeming quality as they are edged with lace which I guess makes them slightly more endearing than “big pants”!
Summary After 4 Days
I’m feeling less anxious and grumpy with less hot flushes and hot sweats. I even find that I’m sleeping better!
I will keep you posted but I’m feeling so much more positive about everything at the moment.
Let me know if you are trying it and let me know how you’re getting on in the comments.
