Menopause in Younger Women
Published: 25th February 2017
Around one in a hundred women under 40 years of age have an premature menopause. Going through the menopause when you are young can be very difficult emotionally. Without treatment it can also increase your risk of conditions in the future such as heart disease and osteoporosis. It is really important that you seek help and treatment if you have an premature menopause.
Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre was founded by leading menopause specialist and GP, Dr Louise Newson, and officially opened in September 2018 by Liz Earle MBE. Created to help women receive the most appropriate, individualised treatment for their perimenopause and menopause, it has quickly become a centre of excellence, providing care to women of all ages, as well as running educational events for primary care clinicians.
Dr Newson is also the founder of the Menopause Doctor website, a free resource since 2017, providing the latest unbiased, evidence based information about the menopause and perimenopause for women as well as the most recent national and international menopause articles and guidelines for healthcare professionals.
