Throughout their lifespan, women transition between puberty, menstruation, and menopause. While they experience significant changes between each phase, there is a lack of research and education to help women approach these transitional periods with confidence. This course will offer an introduction to the moments where women encounter change. It will explain each phase and offer guidance to help women through these transitions.


This course aims to provide learners with a clear understanding of the reproductive transitions that occur during the female lifespan.

Excellent course! Many talking points inspired me to create more dialogue in the menopause experience for women attending primary care over 40.
