Menopause

Women’s Health Platform – NHS Inform Later Years (50 plus)

The Women's Health Platform on NHS Inform sets out information on women’s health at key stages of life, from puberty to later years. While this Platform uses the term Women’s Health, not only those who identify as women require access to women’s health and reproductive services. For example, some transgender men, non-binary people, and intersex people or people with variations in sex characteristics may also experience menstrual cycles, pregnancy and the menopause.

Balance

Menopause is inevitable........ Menopause is when your periods stop due to lower hormone levels. This usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55. Perimenopause is when you have symptoms before your periods have stopped. You reach menopause when you have not had a period for 12 months. Menopause and perimenopause can cause symptoms like anxiety, mood swings, brain fog, hot flushes and irregular periods. These symptoms can start years before your periods stop and carry on afterwards.
