The menopausal transition and healthy ageing and well-being

This project hypothesises that the menopausal transition (MT) has important health, social and economic implications. The team will explore changes over the MT in 2,800 women, having collected more than 20 years' worth of data on reproductive health, general health and lifestyle before the menopause, plus information on offspring and partners. It hopes to clarify the relationship between MT changes and healthy ageing in women and how these relate to their partners' and children's well-being.
