Information about menopause

Your GP should give you (and your family members or carers if appropriate) information about menopause. They should give it to you in different ways, for example discuss it with you and give you something in writing. The information should cover:

  • the stages of menopause

  • common symptoms and how menopause is diagnosed

  • lifestyle changes to improve your general health and wellbeing

  • contraception

  • benefits and risks of treatments for menopausal symptoms

  • how menopause may affect your future health.
