There’s no denying it, I am no longer 25, my brain may keep telling me that I am, but my body knows otherwise. I turned 50 earlier this month and I’m convinced that I’ve been perimenopausal for some time now. I had a blood test done a few years ago, the results came back negative, but my diary tells a different story. Whilst yes, I may still be having regular periods, I also have very regular symptoms that I never used to get. I feel like I’m on a total rollercoaster emotionally at certain points within the month, at exactly the same time every single month. It’s not like PMT, it’s so much more than that. Along with that joy I’ve also started to experience hot flushes, sometimes during the day, often at night. But I’ve found something that’s hopefully going to help and I shall be keeping cool with FanU from now on.
The idea of keeping cool with FanU was originally developed into the product it is today when the designed saw her daughter suffering with hot flushes whilst undergoing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. Her daughter was struggling and really needed something portable and lightweight to keep her cool. It soon became clear that the FanU could help people going through the menopause and other hormonal changes too.
The FanU is a mini air-conditioning unit, available in white or pink and comes with a rechargeable lithium battery, USB cable and lanyard.
It weighs 95g, so it’s really lightweight and is easy to wear, hold and have in your bag or by the bed.
There’s a flick switch on the side of the unit to turn it on and off and outlet vents at the top of the unit.
In fact I’m going to take it to Portugal with me next month to see what my Mum thinks. Where she lives in Spain it’s often over 40 degrees in the summer months, so she might find this ideal to keep her cool when she’s on the go.
I’ve been keeping cool with FanU recently with temperatures ranging from 10-41 (I kid you not, my Oxfordshire garden was hotter than Dubai at one point last week) degrees and it’s really worked well in all conditions and has certainly helped when I’ve had hot flushes at night.
Whether I’ve hand-held it
Or had it tucked into my top
I’ve been keeping cool with FanU.
It’s worth noting that instructions don’t come with the product, but the battery is supplied in situ and charged so you are ready to go straight away. I do wish there was some battery life indicator included on the FanU but I have been advised that when the battery is fully charged it will run constantly for 2 and half hours and that a fully battery recharge takes 2 hours.
All in all for £9.99 +P&P I think this is a rather handy item and I’ll certainly be making good use of it in the months to come. Also, for every FanU sold the company will be supporting Breast Cancer Now. For more information about the FanU and to order the FanU in either white or pink, pop over to their website.
