The Women’s Health Platform sets out information on women’s health at key stages of life, from puberty to later years. While this Platform uses the term Women’s Health, not only those who identify as women require access to women's health and reproductive services. For example, some transgender men, non-binary people, and intersex people or people with variations in sex characteristics may also experience menstrual cycles, pregnancy and the menopause.
Girls and young women (puberty to around 25)
This is an important stage in life for women and girls, marking the start of menstruation, sexual activity and fertility.
Middle years (around 25 to 50 years)
During this time you might need support with contraception, sexual health, planning for pregnancy and specific help to manage periods and menstrual disorders.
Later years (around 50 years and over)
In this period of life, some women experience more complex health needs.
