Menopause Awareness Month

October marks Menopause Awareness Month, raising awareness for women who are feeling lost and going through menopause and need support.

Since 2009, the International Menopause Society (IMS), in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), has designated October as World Menopause Awareness Month.

The menopause is when a woman stops having periods and is no longer able to get pregnant naturally. Periods usually start to become less frequent over a few months or years before they stop altogether. Sometimes they can stop suddenly.

The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman’s oestrogen levels decline. In the UK, the average age for a woman to reach the menopause is 51.

Here are WeAreTheCity, we want to offer our support to try and help you navigate through these new challenges. We’ve got a whole host of themed features, opinion pieces, resources, advice articles, events and much more.

On 18th October, we will also be marking World Menopause Day. The theme for this year’s World Menopause Day is cognition and mood.
