Interakt has made a documentary about the transition together with Ingeborg Beugel.
Like so many women, the program maker Ingeborg Beugel (53) was completely taken by surprise. She was irritable, confused, depressed, unruly and no longer interested in sex. She didn't recognize herself anymore and thought she was going crazy. Beugel went to live alone and took a man besides her regular partner. Much too late, Beugel learned that these drastic changes in her life had to do with something she thought would never happen to her: the menopause. To her own surprise, Beugel was totally unprepared and knew almost nothing about it.
