PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! From the title, you might reasonably have expected that the most shocking element of Davina McCall: Sex, Myths and the Menopause would be a scene featuring the former Big Brother host giggling over sex toys and lubricants. But a frank discussion over vaginal dryness was arguably the tamest segment of a programme that unflinchingly delved into an area of women’s health that has been neglected endlessly.The shameful truths came thick and fast, such as the fact that the menopause makes up only a voluntary extra e-module for trainee doctors or that there is only one menopause clinic serving the entire area between Leeds and the Scottish border.However shocking the statistics are, it’s nothing compared to the shock of the onset of symptoms that most of us know virtually nothing about.Your guide to what to watch next - no spoilers, we promiseEmail address is invalidThank you for subscribing!Sorry, there was a problem with your subscription.McCall was the perfect anchor: empathetic, warm, honest and straight-talking.
