Lisa Snowdon details the symptoms of her early menopause
Lisa Snowdon fell pregnant again at 51 and hoped to raise the baby as a single mother, however moments before going on air at LBC she suffered a miscarriage.
The presenter shared how she could not help but feel it was a “punishment” for terminating her baby years prior.
She revealed her first pregnancy could have been her “one shot” at motherhood and how she has since tormented herself over it.
Lisa said: “I’d think, ‘Was that my chance and it’s gone? Is this my punishment? Maybe I don’t deserve to be a mother because I did that.”
Despite having dark thoughts, she “stands by” her decision to have an abortion as she wasn’t with the “right man” at the time.

She revealed “I suffered insomnia, hair thinning, extreme night sweats, severe anxiety and angry rages, but I didn’t even know what perimenopause was back then.
