Starting the conversation about menopause
Menopause affects every family in the world and it can no longer be a taboo subject. Whilst not everyone is comfortable talking about personal experiences of menopause, it is important for women to know they can talk about it without being judged or shamed and ultimately be given the opportunity to speak.
Hear seven women #BreakTheTaboo on menopause in our 'Menopause Roundtable'. The conversation includes their menopause symptoms and the impact it has on their daily lives at home and work.
Menopause is complex and it affects every women differently. While there are more than 20 common symptoms of menopause, there are over 100 official symptoms associated with peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopause.
Many women believe the menopause is something that affects them in the mid-late 40s, but hormonal changes marking the beginning of the menopause can start years before. In fact, it is not uncommon for these changes to start in your late 30s or a decade before your actual menopause.
Some symptoms of menopause affect 70% of women, others affect 10% of women. While some women will sail through menopause with no symptoms at all, the majority of women will experience a variety of symptoms, and the impact of these symptoms on physical and mental health can be devastating on lives, relationships and jobs.

Our diet is the foundation of our health and wellbeing and it is even more important when going through menopause. What we eat and avoid can have a significant impact on menopause symptoms.

Navigating the menopause
Navigating the menopause and its impact on your health and wellbeing can be tricky. Our expert team provides insights into how menopause can impact your health and wellbeing so you can thrive through the menopause.
The impact of menopause
In March 2022 we conducted our Annual Menopause Survey of over 1,000 women going through all stages of menopause.
The results highlight the 20 most common symptoms of menopause, the impact on mental and physical health, the impact of women going through menopause in the workplace, and the priorities for employers to better support women.
Writing a menopause policy
It's important for all employees to feel safe, valued and respected. In some countries there is a stigma surrounding menopause, it is therefore even more important that companies are explicit about supporting employees and there is a clear and accessible pathway to seek help.
In our menopause research, only 10% believed that employers provide enough support for women going through menopause, and just 30% believed employers are understanding of how menopause affects them at work.
