Menopause

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; here are some suggested links if you would like to find out more. Alternatively feel free to contact the Gynaecology Oncology CNS team to talk about any questions or concerns you may have.
