Premature Ovarian Insufficiency and Early Menopause
The average age of the menopause is 51 in the UK with the perimenopause starting 7-10 years prior to this but what about those women who fall outside of this ‘average’ range? Premature Ovarian Insufficiency affects around one in a hundred women under the age of 40 years in the UK and around one in a thousand women under 30 years. Often these women do not realise what is happening to them and it can be easily missed as a diagnosis. Hormone replacement therapy is crucial for these women not only for symptom control and quality of life, but also for the proven health benefits it can confer.
In this webinar, Ms Hayley Berry and Dr Olivia Jones will discuss how these women present, why this happens and the treatment options available.
For non-members of NHMS, there is a minimum donation of £15.00 to join this event, all contributions will be used for menopause research and education.
