Understanding menopause & getting support

Menopause isn’t a dirty word.  It’s a fact of life.  It's a transition.

The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as oestrogen levels decline. But around 1 in 100 women will experience the menopause before reaching the age of 40. The symptoms and impact of these in the workplace may vary from person to person, but menopause is a key workplace issue.
