Menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

If you’re a woman approaching midlife, you may be wondering what surprises menopause will bring. You may already even be juggling some of the physical and emotional symptoms that are part of this time.

“This can be the start of a new and positive life stage,” says Professor Jane Fisher, clinical psychologist and director of research at the Jean Hailes for Women’s Health Foundation. “Forget the stereotypes about older women having less to contribute. It can be one of the best phases of your life.”

Women may start experiencing symptoms in the five or so years leading to menopause, a period known as “perimenopause.” This usually starts in the late 40s, with women reaching menopause – having their last menstrual period – in their early 50s.
