It is time to Make Menopause Matter and fundamentally change the way we treat Menopause.

Let's start with the basics - for everyone out there who doesn't know yet what menopause is.

Menopause is the time when a woman's period ends. It is officially diagnosed after 12 consecutive months without a period. Average age is 51. Perimenopause is the time leading up to menopause, with an average age of 47.

There are currently approximately 43M women in the U.S. of menopausal age.

  1. 75% of  women will experience at least 1 menopausal symptom, if not more than 1 (hot flashes, mood changes, insomnia, anxiety)
  2. 55% don't do anything to treat their symptoms
  3. There are currently 27M menopausal women in the workforce - 1 out 10 drop out due to menopause symptoms
