With menopause being such a normal, important, yet widely misunderstood topic, we are pleased to be able to share with you the video of our latest menopause event.
There are roughly 15.5 million women in the UK who are in some state of the menopause transition and, with life expectancy increasing, this means that almost 40% of the average woman’s life is spent post-menopause.
Yet the silence, lack of awareness, and understanding around the menopause has a personal, social, and economic impact, and this needs to change.
In this informative session, Clare and Helen, the co-founders of My Menopause Centre, explain how and why it’s important to get people talking about menopause so that attitudes can start to be reframed. Claire, who is a GP and menopause specialist, also explores the mental and physical symptoms of menopause in more detail, and answers questions on a range of different topics, including HRT.
Clare and Helen hope to show women that it’s never too late to start preparing for menopause or managing symptoms, and that by doing so, it’s possible to thrive rather than survive – at home, at work, and in relationships.
MyMenopauseCentre is a site that raises awareness of menopause. It aims to empower women to take control of their menopause by providing evidence-based information and advice on what the menopause is, and what the symptoms and treatment options are.
It also has an online menopause clinic run by female doctors who have years of experience in treating and supporting women going through the menopause.
