This app is intended to be helpful at any time and will have more things added, but clearly in the current situation there is some Covid-specific guidance.
Once in the HealthZone UK app, simply search for ‘UHDB - Cancer App’

The word menopause comes from ‘meno’ meaning your menstrual cycle and ‘pause’ meaning to stop. The medical definition of menopause is when you have not had a period for 12 months; these changes may occur naturally or can be as a result of treatment. Many ladies that undergo treatment for a gynaecological cancer may find themselves experiencing symptoms of an early menopause.
It is recognised that there are around 30+ symptoms associated with menopause. Feel free to contact the Gynaecology Oncology CNS team to talk about any questions or concerns you may have.
