Davina’s symptoms soon began affecting her work as she struggled to read scripts and television autocues.
“A producer who’s now quite high up at ITV in fact, she came up to me and she said, ‘Are you OK?’. Because I was normally so on it.
“And I just couldn’t get on it anymore. I just thought, ‘Oh God, I am in a fog’.”
Now, after being prescribed HRT by a private gynaecologist, Davina feels “better” than she has done in several years.
“I am working hard, I’m at the top of my game and feel like I’ve been reborn,” she said.
Davina McCall: Sex, Myths And The Menopause airs on Channel 4 on Wednesday May 12.
