Women of Australia, it's time to talk.
If you feel uncomfortable talking about symptoms of menopause, you're not alone.
Many of the common symptoms of menopause cause women to feel ashamed and embarrassed. Staying silent and not receiving treatment leads inevitably to less than satisfactory health and wellbeing. We’re encouraging women to seek support for symptoms which may cause distress but can be treated if talked about more openly with your health care professional.

Register for our free event and ‘Break The Taboo’ with our panel of experts
12pm – 1.30pm AEST (9am-10.30am AWST)
Thursday 26th November:
You’ll be joining Medical Sex Therapist Margaret Redelman, Journalist and Author Caroline Baum, Consultant Pharmacist Negar Almassi (Pharmacy 777) and Writer and former Triathlete Jo Pybus for an open, honest and frank discussion about the less talked about symptoms of menopause, where you will be given the opportunity to ask questions, get advice and share experiences.
Ladies, let’s reduce the stigma, it’s time we talk.
We all have a role in normalising a sensitive conversation by encouraging each other to seek support and health care advice to facilitate symptom relief. Vaginal health is an important part of a woman’s overall wellbeing and there are many factors that can impact women during peri-menopause, menopause, pregnancy, due to other health conditions or when taking certain medications.
If you're concerned, please seek the support of your trusted health care professional.
And remember, it’s important you feel comfortable. Speak up and please ask for a discrete and private chat from your Pharmacist and health care professionals. We also encourage more conversations with the women in your life. Please share the event with your family and friends.
Our Pharmacists can support you and also advise referral and recommendations to see your GP, OBGYN or Medical Sex Therapist if symptoms persist or do not improve with a prescribed treatment regimen.
