Canberra Menopause Centre

Find out how menopause may affect your life and what The Canberra Menopause Centre can do for you.

Based at SHFPACT, The Canberra Menopause Centre is a dedicated service for those seeking information, support and medical management of menopause symptoms.

Menopause is the stage of life when periods cease. This occurs when the ovaries are no longer producing eggs, and is a natural life event. Menopause has three stages: perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause.

Pinpointing Perimenopause

Is it perimenopause? Find out some of the obvious (and not-so-obvious) symptoms leading up to menopause.

Some call it a transition. To others, it's a stage. But no matter what view you take, perimenopause is the period in a woman's reproductive life that begins some years — anywhere from 2 to 10 — before menopause. Diana E. Hoppe, MD and gynecologist, says, "For most women, perimenopausal symptoms show up in their 40s, although for some, the signs may start as early as their 30s."
