Menopause is the term used to describe when a person who menstruates stops experiencing menstruation due to lower levels of hormones. With an estimated 13 million people currently Peri or Menopausal in the UK, it is an experience that needs to be spoken about openly to eliminate any stigma surrounding an often challenging time in life. Our range of Menopause speakers work hard to eliminate the stigma that surrounds Menopause, ensuring that those who are experiencing Perimenopause and Menopause are supported in both the working environment and society as a whole.

Menopause is caused by a lower level of hormones, which causes menstruation to stop. Usually happening between the ages of 45 and 55, Menopause can also happen to younger people naturally. It can also be caused by Oophorectomy or Hysterectomy, cancer treatments or genetic conditions. A person is classed as Menopausal when they have not menstruated for 12 months, and Perimenopausal when they are having symptoms before menstruation has stopped completely.
When experiencing Perimenopause or Menopause, symptoms include anxiety, irregular menstruation, hot flushes, ‘brain fog’ and mood swings. Such symptoms can cause people to suffer with relationships, work and day-to-day aspects of life. Many things can be done to help the symptoms, but it is vitally important to create a network of support for people experiencing Menopause and reduce any stigma.
