British Menopause Society

The British Menopause Society (BMS) educates, informs, & guides healthcare professionals (HPCs) on menopause & all aspects of post-reproductive health

Menopause and post-reproductive healthcare must be explicitly inclusive of trans men, transmasculine and non-binary people.
