British Menopause Society (BMS)

Who we are

BMS logo

The British Menopause Society (BMS), established in 1989, educates, informs and guides healthcare professionals in all aspects of post reproductive health.

This is achieved through an annual programme of lectures, conferences, meetings, exhibitions and our interactive website, including our Find a specialist register.

We offer a range of publications including our quarterly journal Post Reproductive Health and the definitive handbook Management of the Menopause.


Women's Health Concern (WHC), the patient arm of the BMS, provides an independent service to advise, reassure and educate women of all ages about their health, wellbeing and lifestyle concerns.

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...!


What we do

Our mission is:

  • To increase awareness of post reproductive healthcare issues
  • To promote optimal management through our educational programme, publications and information dissemination

The challenge of post reproductive health management is increasing. As most British women can expect to live for 30 years or more beyond menopause, the consequences for immediate and longer term healthcare and lifestyle are significant. British Menopause Society membership is open to healthcare professionals and others specialising in post reproductive health.

Our Medical Advisory Council comprises leading national and international experts in post-reproductive health management, who are instrumental in instigating scientific research and creating evidence-based 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.

The Society also aims to develop links to other similar societies based in different geographical locations.
