Drew Barrymore Opens Up About Menopause with Dr. Kellyann

She is a best selling author, award-winning actress and producer, successful entrepreneur,  and Emmy nominated talk show host! She has been a working actress since she was 11 months old. Her breakout role came at age 7 in a movie with an extraterrestrial.

Now, Little Gertie from ET is all grown up and like so many millions of us, she is dealing with hormonal changes.

“Let's make this a national conversation. Let's make it sexy, safe, humorous… And normalize it. So it doesn't feel like we're some dried up old put us out to pasture bags because we're in menopause.”- Drew Barrymore


Last year at the end of March, Drew was at work and was doing the talk show she hosts. She was sitting down doing an interview with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler.  

And they were having a great time.  They were talking about doing a remake of a classic 70’s sitcom together Three’s Company.  Who should play Janet? Who should play Chrissy? The conversation was so fun. And then it happened. It was very sudden. 

Like someone struck a matchstick inside her body…intense heat radiating from her core. She felt like her blood was literally boiling so she ripped off her jacket and began to narrate to her audience what was happening in real time. She blurted out “I think I'm having one of my first hot flashes,” as she furiously fanned herself and repeated, “I think I'm having my first hot flash!”  Jen and Adam were so cool about it, which was clearly exactly what she needed in that moment - a little support and laughter.

But once the cameras stopped her mind started reeling. Her period had been irregular and now it seemed like hot flashes were starting. She was exhausted. She was thinking: I’m in my late 40s but this is seeming a lot like… Is it menopause?


Drew admitted she rarely goes to the doctor, although she’s trying to get better about that. But when she started experiencing the telltale signs of perimenopause and menopause she decided it was time to see someone. That doctor's visit for Drew was not a positive experience. Drew felt completely dismissed. The doctor told her, “I don't know. Maybe you're in menopause… maybe you're not. Maybe you need hormones… maybe you don't.”  She left feeling discouraged and just utterly confused. The one time she tried to go she had a horrible experience. This is sadly something that so many women go through when entering this new stage of life…and it needs to change! 


She would find and share information with other women. She would find and share solutions with them.  Like the amazing one she discovered that has turned her entire life around.
