HRT prescriptions will be limited to three months to contain shortages

It is estimated that one in five of the UK population currently suffers from it.

Yet menopause is still whispered about in low tones, as if it were something to be ashamed of.

The stigma attached to transition means women have suffered in silence for centuries.

Determined to change that, The Sun is launching the Fabulous Menopause Matters campaign to break the taboo and give women the support they need.

The campaign has three goals:

  • To make HRT free in England
  • To get every workplace to have a menopause policy to provide support
  • Breaking taboos around menopause

The campaign was endorsed by a variety of influential figures including Baroness Karren Brady CBE, celebrities Lisa Snowdon, Jane Moore, Michelle Heaton, Zoe Hardman, Saira Khan, Trisha Goddard and Dr. Louise Newson, Carolyn Harris MP, Jess Phillips MP, Caroline Nokes MP and Rachel Maclean MP.

An exclusive study commissioned by Fabulous, which surveyed 2,000 British women aged 45 to 65 who were or were going through the menopause, found that 49% of the women suffered from depression, while 7% had suicidal thoughts, while going through menopause.

50% of respondents said there isn’t enough support for women going through menopause, which just isn’t good enough. It’s time to change that.
