Help us make menopause part of everyday conversation

“I don’t think people realise how raw it feels when you first realise you are menopausal." - Carolyn Harris MP

The perimenopause and menopause will affect nearly all women at some point in their lives.

Sadly, many people still do not feel comfortable talking to others about the menopause, not even with close friends and family. Some may not even be aware they’re approaching or going through the menopause due to a lack of awareness.

We want to make sure all women are able to get the help and support they need. This starts with normalising conversations about the menopause.

To help us do this, our Let’s #ChatMenopause campaign features films of inspiring women sharing their experiences.

We would love you to join the conversation and share your own story on social media using the hashtag, #ChatMenopause.
