Ratings and Reviews
I am normal!!! ... well sort of!!!
I have already researched a lot about menopause and the many different symptoms following my hysterectomy at 46. I have been peri-menopausal since 38 and my symptoms suddenly became a lot worse and more consistent following the op. Following Dr Louise on IG has been such a God send for me as my GP’s have never been particularly understanding. You feel you’re literally going mad, so the realisation after downloading this app, that you’re actually just ‘meno-normal’ is a huge relief! I feel as though every part of this app resonates in some way with me and I love Louise’s top tips. It is a revolution in women’s health that I am so glad to be part of and I applaud and support Dr Louise in her plight to educate, enlighten and spread knowledge of what affects half of the worlds population, yet unbelievably so many medical professionals know very little about. If you feel like you’re losing your marbles, download this app, follow Dr Louise on IG and you’ll soon realise what you’re experiencing is normal and you’ll have a place to go to find out what you can do to help yourself. Can’t recommend this app enough! Thank you Louise x

Hello Meh, thank you so much for your review and kind words! We are so happy that balance app has helped you. Wishing you all the best.- Team balance
I found this app following watching Lorraine on itv. The female doctor who was involved with the app explained the rationale for it. Following downloading the app it has offered me more knowledge of the menopause and what to expect. The app offers information to record which helps the site to develop the research into the menopause. I think this has been a very useful piece of equipment to have in my phone and I share my experiences with others for them to appreciate this app and to help them. It is important to record the daily logs to enable you to reflect on what has happened within your day. You can record your exercise plan, fluid and nutritional intake. Give it a go you won’t be disappointed
I absolutely love this app. As a med student and doctor, training in perimenopause and menopause is dismal and I found myself having so many symptoms that I just couldn’t understand. This app is so informative (you do not need medical knowledge to understand the info) and explains symptoms like brain fog, anxiety, muscle pain, worsening allergies etc none of which I knew could be related to low oestrogen levels. The daily symptom tracker is great for helping highlight symptoms that may be getting worse or better. The app allows you to print out a report of your daily symptoms to help your GP understand what you are feeling, useful when you may just feel too overwhelmed and exhausted to explain clearly yourself. Brilliant App. Thank you.
