Now a US startup is launching an online platform for women entering the menopause. Users can share symptoms and receive medical support.
An individual treatment plan is jointly agreed. The effects of hormonal change can be softened by changes in lifestyle and diet; sometimes by taking medication.
The new platform also hosts a series of virtual events where women can get to know one another, exchange information and provide mutual support.
An important step in a field that has too long been ignored. Providing a break from the pause.
