Halle Berry Reveals Doctor’s Misdiagnosis of Perimenopause as Severe Herpes Case.

During a discussion on women’s health with First Lady Jill Biden at Monday’s A Day of Unreasonable Conversation conference, Halle Berry spoke about being misdiagnosed by a doctor after experiencing significant pain while having s-x.

The Oscar winner, who advocates for menopausal awareness, is currently dating singer and songwriter Van Hunt. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she explained to the audience that she sought medical attention for pain after having s-x. Berry, 57, remembers the doctor telling her she had the worst case of herpes he’d ever seen, despite the fact that she was eventually diagnosed with perimenopausal symptoms.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the term perimenopause “means ‘around menopause’ and refers to the time during which your body makes the natural transition to menopause, marking the end of the reproductive years.”

Berry’s midlife campaign aims to change perceptions of menopause and perimenopause, which were previously stigmatized. She emphasized the importance of changing the narrative. This is a wonderful moment of life.”

The actress shared her experience with perimenopausal symptoms and being misdiagnosed by doctors. “First of all, my ego told me that I was going to skip it — I’m very safe, I’m healthy, I managed to get myself off of insulin and manage my diabetes since I’m 20 years old,” she said.

She then discussed “finally” meeting the man of her dreams [Van Hunt] at the age of 54, before moving on to their s-x life and the time she went to the hospital after experiencing terrible discomfort.

Berry and Hunt were tested for herpes after a doctor suspected she had the se-xually transmitted infection. The results, however, were unfavorable.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress from Monster’s Ball recognized dryness as a perimenopausal symptom after the fact. “My doctor had no knowledge and didn’t prepare me, that’s when I knew, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve got to use my platform, I have to use all of who I am and I have to start making a change and a difference for other women.'”

The First Lady and Berry also challenged creators and executives attending the event to “help us change the way culture views women at this stage of our lives.” “We’re not exactly at the end,” Berry said.

“We’re sitting up here, two women who are definitely on the path of life; we’re not finished. We’re only getting started with our next act.

The debate occurred after President Joe Biden signed an executive order to promote women’s health research and innovation.
