Welcome to My Second Spring!

I’m Aisling, and I’ve created My Second Spring to provide a voice and resource for all of us during the time of transition and growth that is the menopause. Menopause is often an uncomfortable topic, still taboo for many of us.


Let’s Talk Menopause with Lorraine Keane

"Honestly I never thought I was in the target market for anything to do with menopause or perimenopause”! Lorraine Keane was stunned when Cleanmarine approached her to be the ambassador for their new MenoMin supplement, but the 40 something other of two started to recognise some of the classic symptoms.....



We arrange gatherings for women to learn from expert speakers and from each other. Join us and be inspired, the atmosphere is always buzzy, relaxed and fun.

Preparing for My Second Spring

Preparing for My Second Spring

I conceived the idea of a website about the menopause early in February 2013. What a coincidence that it has taken me nine months to bring it to fruition and launch on 18th October 2013.

During my research, I learnt lots about the menopause, and here are some key findings:

  • Menopause is complete when we have had no periods for 12 months.
  • Most symptoms take place during perimenopause - the 4-8 years before menopause.
  • Only about 10% of women will need medical treatment for menopause symptoms.
  • 100% of women will benefit from positive lifestyle adjustments in areas such as diet, exercise and stress management.
  • If we have unresolved life issues we may have a more difficult menopause.
  • Osteoporosis is known as the silent disease - it comes upon us without warning symptoms.

During the website's 9 month gestation I also learned a lot about computers, website design, affiliate marketing, search engine optimisation, blogging and persevering. So if you've got any inkling to pursue a business, follow a dream or start again in any way, go ahead and take the first step today! You'll find lots of support here.
