All ‘urban’ deliveries within New Zealand are by courier and direct to your door. All deliveries require a signature. Please ensure when placing your order you advise us of any special delivery instructions, especially if you are likely to be away from home when the courier calls. For New Zealand deliveries, if you would like to set up an Authority to Leave (ATL) please fill in the NZ POST ATL form here. For Australian deliveries, please see more information here.

All ‘rural’ deliveries within New Zealand are by CourierPost/NZ Post direct to your mailbox.

Any shortages or breakages must be reported to MenoMe® within 24 hours, preferably by email and quoting your purchase details.

Post-menopause


This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.

Perimenopause

Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
