Menopause and Me Booklet

Your menopause is a not an illness or medical condition: it is a completely normal life event for women.

However, this means that the troublesome symptoms it can bring are all too often under recognised, undervalued and not taken seriously. Symptoms such as hot flushes, fatigue, mood changes and brain fog can affect all aspects of life, including home life, relationships and careers.

This guide looks at what your menopause actually is and the symptoms you may experience, as well as the treatments and lifestyle changes that make a real difference.

The information in this guide is aimed at women aged 45 and over. If you are under 45, you should refer to the Menopause and Me for Younger Women guide.
