The purpose of the day is to raise awareness on the menopause and support options for improving health and wellbeing. The theme of World Menopause Day 2019 is Testosterone for Women in Midlife.
The month of October is World Menopause Month, dedicated to educating the women of the world on firstly what the menopause actually is, secondly how it can affect you and thirdly what you can do to live your life to the fullest while your body adjusts to the changes that come with the menopause.

What does the day aim to achieve?
World Menopause Day is a day dedicated to helping women understand the menopause and how it can change their bodies, getting to grips with the symptoms and how they can feel healthy and happy during this transitional period.
A survey conducted by the British Menopause Society (BMS) in 2017 found that three quarters of women say that the menopause caused them to change their life. Over half of said women have said that it had a negative impact on their lives.
The findings reveal that there is a far greater need for support for women suffering from the menopause all over the UK. World Menopause Day aims to enable women who are going through the transitional period of the menopause with the education to understand their bodies and how they can live fulfilled lives whilst managing the symptoms of the menopause.
Don’t feel alone during the Menopause!
I’ve found myself through my Menopause meet-ups, friends, as well as clients, that many women feel alone and that the menopause has a negative impact on their lives, and without support or education can go on to have further health problems later in life.
The British Menopause Society record that a staggering ‘47% of women who have needed to take a day off work due to menopause symptoms say they wouldn’t tell their employer the real reason’. Further to this ‘51% of women say that menopause has affected their sex lives’, and ‘38% of partners say they feel helpless when it comes to supporting their partner through the menopause’.
Doctors have called for women to take action in order to avoid chronic diseases later in life, which is why World Menopause Day is so important, but many Doctors do not have the time or enough knowledge to share with their patients.
On average, roughly a third of a woman’s life is lived after the menopause. The general age of the natural menopause among women who live in developed countries is around 51.
