Abstract: This monograph on the history of the menopause is a by-product of the various influences in my postgraduate Obstetric and Gynaecological training. As Professor Mark Paul Brincat returned to our shores an increased interest in Gynaecological Endocrinologyensued. In conjunction with the ageing population, the menopausal aspect of Gynaecological Endocrinology came into sharper focus resulting in industrious scientific study of postmenopausal conditions in particular osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. As in any scientific venture, the historical milieu of medical endeavour is intriguing and sheds light for further scientific study. As another by-product of my postgraduate training, the medico-historical background of Professor Charles Savona Ventura imbued an avid interest in the historical setting of the menopause. This monograph is thus the result of a sturdy alloy, amalgamating the science and history of the menopause. For this and more I am deeply indebted to both Professors Brincat and Savona Ventura.
