Dr Louise Newson: Female hormones and health – why do we need to talk about perimenopause and menopause?

6th July @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


For far too long, the menopause has simply been considered as a condition which either affects periods or fertility. Few people have thought about the important role of oestrogen, testosterone and progesterone in our bodies. These hormones can have very beneficial effects and when the level of these hormones reduce, many symptoms can occur and there is also an increased risk of diseases including heart disease and dementia.

I will talk about what perimenopause and menopause are, how to be diagnosed, treatment choices and how to have a healthy menopause. HRT myths will be debunked too. I hope this talk will enable people to think about female hormones in a different way so that more women will be able to receive the advice, care and treatment they deserve to improve their mental and physical health.
