Menopause is a natural phenomenon associated with the reduction or cessation of natural female hormones from the ovaries often leading to varied symptoms of hot flushes, night sweats, brain fog, muscle and joint pain, low mood, irritability, reduced libido, and vulvovaginal dryness. By 2050, it is estimated that 1.6 billion women worldwide will be in the post-reproductive menopause phase with >75% reporting severe vasomotor symptoms that negatively affect their quality of life. Left unmanaged, menopausal symptoms can have a detrimental effect on women’s wellbeing, mental health, and their effective participation in the workplace.
While it is a natural stage in women’s life, effective management and access to health care is often complex leaving many women suffering in silence. Educating women and understanding their individual health needs is an important element to help women with menopause to optimise their quality of life and stay healthy on the longterm.
