Bridging the Perimenopause Knowledge Gap: How BRIA Can Help

October 5, 2023

Although the average Canadian woman will spend up to half her life in menopause, fewer than 25% of family physicians will proactively discuss menopause with their patients. According to a 2022 survey by The Menopause Foundation of Canada, 95% of women experience menopausal symptoms. While many know about hot flashes(84%) and night sweats(77%), two-thirds of women aren’t aware that urinary tract infections(82%) and heart palpitations(75%) can also be symptoms. Similarly, six in ten don’t recognize that headaches/migraines(58%), anxiety(58%), depression(56%), and memory issues(58%) may also be perimenopause/menopause symptoms. This lack of knowledge interferes with the identification of menopause-related symptoms and with finding relief.

At BRIA, our compassionate experts will assess your various symptoms and help you understand unique changes happening in your body. We’ll help you distinguish menopause-related symptoms from other conditions, including mental health concerns, and empower you with knowledge and offer treatments to navigate this stage.
