Menopause resource centre
The menopause is one of the last taboos in society and for many women. It’s a time when our bodies and minds can undergo profound natural changes - but why don’t we talk about it more with each other, our families and employers, and why can’t this journey in a woman’s life be as positive and powerful as any other?

HOW MENOPAUSE SAVVY ARE YOU?
More than just a conversational taboo in the workplace, the menopause is also a cause of confusion among those who actually experience it. Take our quiz and find out how much you know about this potentially life-changing transition…
As midlife career inspiration and opportunity come knocking, so does another phenomenon: the perimenopause or menopause, and falling hormone levels that can cause anything from hot flushes and sleep problems to low self-confidence.
Menopause can be debilitating, and result in all sorts of symptoms, such as depression, but for me it was mainly characterised by hot flushes and increasingly irregular periods, some of which were extremely heavy. They started coming every couple of weeks and I would think “I’ve just been on a three-week period, when is it going to end? And then I wouldn’t get one again for three months. My menstrual cycle became very very erratic before tailing off and my last period was nearly a decade ago.”
