Making Menopause Matter

The menopause is when a woman’s menstrual cycle stops and they are no longer able to get pregnant naturally. 

The menopause is when a woman’s menstrual cycle stops and they are no longer able to get pregnant naturally. Periods usually start to become less frequent over a few months or years before they stop altogether. ‘Going through the menopause’ can bring about symptoms such as irregular periods, hot flushes and confusion.

It will bring factual, evidence-based information to the fingertips of many and provide women with the help and support they deserve when they need it for the future.”
