The British Menopause Society (BMS) provides education, information and guidance to healthcare professionals specialising in all aspects of post reproductive health.
This is achieved through an annual programme of lectures, conferences, meetings, exhibitions and our interactive website. We offer a range of publications including our quarterly journal Post Reproductive Health and the definitive handbook Management of the Menopause.
Our sister charity

WHC offers unbiased information – by telephone, email, printed fact sheets, online and through symposia, seminars, meetings and workshops, including Living and loving well beyond 40…!
- To increase awareness of post reproductive healthcare issues
- To promote optimal management through our educational programme, publications and information dissemination
The publication in November 2015 of the NICE Guideline, Menopause: diagnosis and management is leading to a sharper focus on the mid-life medical challenges facing women. And as most British women can expect to live for thirty years or more beyond menopause, the consequences for immediate and longer term healthcare and lifestyle are significant.
The British Menopause Society is a specialist society af liated to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare. Working together we have developed theoretical and practical training modules aimed at those healthcare professionals who regularly work in the field of women’s health.
British Menopause Society membership is open to healthcare professionals and others specialising in post reproductive health.
