Early menopause can occur either spontaneously (often without a known cause) or as a result of medical treatment, particularly for cancers. Held on 19 October, this webinar was an opportunity to hear from clinicians with expertise in early menopause to talk about the social impact and also hear first-hand from a woman about the lived experience aspects of early menopause.
This webinar is part of the HealthTalk Australia Early Menopause project, created by Healthtalk Australia, Monash University & RMIT University in partnership with Women’s Health Victoria and other organisations involved in supporting women with early menopause.
