Menopause in the workplace
What is Menopause?
The menopause is a natural event in most women’s lives during which they stop having periods and experience hormonal changes such as a decrease in oestrogen levels. It usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 and typically lasts between four and eight years. However, each employee’s experience will differ, and menopausal symptoms can occasionally begin before the age of 40.
Perimenopause, or menopause transition, begins several years before menopause. An individual may start to experience menopausal symptoms during the final two years of perimenopause.
The menopause does not just affect women, men are also affected and this is something that is not widely spoken about. Mastercall aims to get the conversation started around all areas of wellbeing and the menopause is no exception.
Mastercall have menopause champions who have all been trained in menopause who are available to help any of our staff with menopause issues should they need it.
We are also delighted to kick start our menopause initiative with a Q&A/seminar event we are holding open to all Mastercall staff, presented by Dr Julia Gallagher, our Associate Medical Director.
