About

Our mission is to make it easier for women experiencing menopause to find support they need.

The menopause is a time of major hormonal changes. Some women seem to sail through it and others struggle to understand their symptoms, or have many questions about what they can do to manage their health, both in the short term and in the long term. There can be difficult topics to broach; whether or not to use HRT, psychological health, sex, intimacy and incontinence. Maybe you don’t feel comfortable discussing these with your regular doctor, colleagues or even with friends and partners, however supportive they may be.

The reality is that too many women don’t have access to the support they need from their families, communities, the NHS and private healthcare insurers. This can impact your health, confidence and quality of life at work and at home.

We believe that no woman should be unsupported during this time. So we built Peppy Menopause to help women find fully qualified, fully insured and fully vetted practitioners and curated products that you can trust. No more Google searches, spreadsheets and crossing your fingers (or legs!).

Together we can all help to create better futures.
