Time for a change
Too many women are suffering in silence

Too many women are suffering in silence and those that do seek help are often left frustrated and disappointed when medical professionals fail to recognise their menopausal symptoms or recognise their symptoms and either refuse to prescribe HRT or prescribe them incorrectly. Too many women are being told that menopause is just a natural phase of life and they will just have to get on with it. Natural it may be but I challenge anybody who has not experienced the debilitating effects that it can have to just get on with it! Equally demoralising for a woman already struggling with a host of symptoms is to be told that she must be depressed and despatched with a prescription for anti depressants. There is still much fear and confusion around the subject of hormone replacement therapy amongst both doctors and women and 67% of women recently surveyed said there was a general lack of support or advice for those going through menopause.

  • More than 60% of women experience menopausal symptoms

  • Approximately 38 per cent of women seek help from a GP

  • One quarter of those who visited a GP say the possibility of the symptoms being menopause related is missed

  • One third of women who visited a GP were not made aware of hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
