Angelina Jolie Reveals Her Thoughts on Going Through Menopause

November 24, 2015 1 min read

There are a variety of side effects both mentally as well as physically that come along with menopause. From hot flashes, night sweats, irregular periods and loss of libido to mood swings, memory lapses, depression and anxiety, its no wonder it doesn't always come with a positive connotation. But one celebrity is out to change that. Angelina Jolie opened up to The Daily Telegraph that she is going through early menopause as a result of the surgical removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes in March. And contrary to what one might expect her to say on the subject, she says she's happy with it. [bctt tweet="Angelina Jolie Reveals Her Thoughts on Going Through Menopause"]
“I actually love being in menopause,” she revealed to the Telegraph. “I haven’t had a terrible reaction to it, so I’m very fortunate. I feel older, and I feel settled being older. I feel happy that I’ve grown up. I don’t want to be young again.” Her latest surgery came after her preventive double mastectomy, which the actress had back in 2013. Both were the result of a blood test which revealed she had an 87 percent chance of getting breast cancer, which, in addition to ovarian cancer, caused the death of her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, at only 56 years old. “It was another one of those things in life that makes you tighter,” Angelina's husband, Brad Pitt, said on the Today show. “She was doing [the surgeries] for her kids and she was doing it for her family so we could be together.” What do you think of Angelina's outlook on menopause?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
