The British Menopause Society (BMS) is a registered charity and multi-disciplinary society directed at the medical profession. It was founded in 1989 to advance education in menopausal healthcare.

Their mission:

  • To increase awareness of post reproductive healthcare issues
  • To promote optimal management through lectures, conferences, meetings, exhibitions and publications, including its journal, Menopause International.

The challenge of post reproductive health management is increasing. As most British women can expect more than thirty years of post reproductive life, the consequences for immediate and long-term healthcare are significant. The society is committed to increasing awareness of these healthcare issues and promoting optimal clinical management of the menopause and beyond.

Their Medical Advisory Council comprises the leading international experts in post reproductive management, who are instrumental in instigating scientific research and creating consensus statements and guidelines for health professionals.

Although primarily a professional organisation, the BMS website includes information aimed at the general public, including a number of factsheets on various aspects of the menopause.
