Did you know?
A woman is said to be post menopause once she has not had a menstrual period for twelve consecutive months during the transition into the menopause.
The transition period, known as perimenopause, is the time when you will start to notice a decline in fluctuating hormone levels.
The average age of perimenopause/menopause is between 45 and 55.
In the UK the average age to reach the menopause is 51. Some women will experience this before 40.

Another cause of stress and physiological symptoms for many older women is the menopause.
The TUC has long argued that the menopause is a workplace health issue that is all too often overlooked by employers.

The menopause is a natural part of ageing where a women’s oestrogen levels decline.
In the UK the average age to reach the menopause is 51.
Some women, around 1 in 100, will experience the menopause before 40. This is known as premature ovarian insufficiency. The menopause can also be caused by surgery to remove the ovaries, cancer treatment or underlying medical conditions such as Addison’s disease.
