Prioritizing Black Women’s Menopause Health Disparities During Black History Month

Menopause and hormones are just not talked about, particularly among Blacks. Many don’t know how to access experts, don’t talk about it with their doctor and unfortunately, they suffer silently.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2022 / — While all women experience perimenopause, menopause, and hormonal changes during this stage of their lives, women of color, particularly Black women, feel its effects more profoundly. Studies show that Black women:
• Are more likely enter menopause earlier than their white counterparts, at age 49 versus age 51
• Experience more severe symptoms
• Have hot flashes for a longer period of time–10 years as opposed to 6.5 years for white women
• Spend more time in the menopause transition

The question is why?

Longtime community health advocate, age enthusiast, founder of WisePause Wellness-The Menopause Authority, and co-founder The FemAging HealthTech Project, Denise Pines, is available for interviews to speak on this topic. Some of the discussion points around this issue include:

• The knowledge gap physicians around menopause treatment and management;

• The lack of research on women of color in menopause;

• Telehealth options connecting women to functional medical solutions to ease their transitions into menopause;

• Longevity impact of health disparities on menopause;

• How lifestyle, socio-economic status, stressors that include systemic racism play a part in black women’s health and disease.
