This brief article is designed to outline how you can get the best out of the balance eco-system for your perimenopause or menopause.
Step 1 – brush up your knowledge!
The perimenopause and menopause are multifaceted.
It’s good to know that you’ve landed in the right place: the world’s largest menopause library! This library is filled with evidence-based, medically approved content in the form of booklets, factsheets, videos, podcasts and stories from real women.
You could begin by exploring the popular subjects that sit beneath the Menopause Library search bar or alternatively, read our factsheets– great succinct pieces of information that explain many areas to perimenopause and menopause simply.
Step 2 – Download the app

The balance app allows you to gain access to personalised content and best of all, it’s free!
You can download the app in the App Store or Google Play, just search ‘balance menopause’.
Step 3 – Track your symptoms
Once you’re on the app, you can enter your medical history and track your symptoms.
There’s more! You can also log your periods if you have them, read treatment reviews, join a community of like-minded people, take part in experiments, explore wellbeing activities, and keep an eye on your nutrition, mood and sleep.
Step 4 – Generate your personal Health Report©
Newson Health Research and Education found that some women attend up to 10 appointments before receiving a correct menopause diagnosis and treatment, so we know how hard visiting your health care professional can be.
On the app, now you have filled in your personal information and medical background, take the balance Menopause Symptom Questionnaire© and generate your personal Health Report©.
This can be downloaded or printed and taken to your health care appointments. At a glance, your health care professional will be able to see your medical history, symptoms and periods if you have them which frees up time to spend the majority of your consultation discussing appropriate treatment options.
Step 5 – Get the help you deserve
People have been suffering with the menopause hormone deficiency for decades and it’s time to put this right. You do not need to put up with debilitating symptoms that affect your daily life, work, relationships and your future health. There is safe, low-cost, effective treatment available, and everybody should know about this and have access to it, should they wish.
We hope that the balance website and balance app empower you with knowledge and help facilitate your access to the support and treatment you deserve.
