CINCINNATI , November 9, 2023 (press release) –

Actress, author and activist Gabrielle Union will share her menopause story in live-streamed event on November 9 as part of her partnership with Clearblue® and its New Menopause Stage Indicator

Clearblue®, the world’s #1 selling brand in home pregnancy and fertility tests1, has teamed up with actress Gabrielle Union, an active advocate for women’s health, to turn up the volume on the menopause conversation. On the heels of the launch of the brand’s newest innovation, the Menopause Stage Indicator, as part of the partnership, Union will share more about her own personal menopause story in a live-streamed event taking place on November 9th at 12:30pm EST alongside Dr. Heather Hisrch, MD, MS, MSCP and Dr. Fiona Clancy, PhD, R&D senior director at Clearblue.

“I’m so proud to partner with Clearblue® and join their mission to help women feel educated and empowered as they take on perimenopause and menopause,” said Union. “Menopause is a subject we still often ignore, and it leaves women feeling confused, silenced and completely unprepared. I started my perimenopause journey ‘early’ and struggled to navigate the intense physical and emotional symptoms that usurped my entire being. Having a product like the Menopause Stage Indicator at my disposal would have been an eye-opening resource for me as I began searching for answers.”

The Clearblue® Menopause Stage Indicator is the first and only product to combine both a woman’s urine FSH results with her age and cycle history to indicate her likely menopause stage,2 with results securely stored on the free-to-download app,3 Menopause Stage – Clearblue® me. A woman can use the app to download her personalized report to use in conversation with her doctor to understand more about what she is experiencing.

Nearly half of all women confuse their menopause symptoms with other health conditions such as stress or the flu and may not realize it’s actually the start of the menopause journey.4 By partnering with Union, Clearblue® hopes to break the silence surrounding menopause and help equip women with the information they need to embrace this chapter in their lives.

“It is an honor to partner with Gabrielle and collectively work toward the same goal of empowering women on their menopause journey,” said Leah Wood, Clearblue® Brand Director. “As someone who has been open about her own journey, we believe Gabrielle can help many women who, like her, may have confused early symptoms with something else.”

“Women don’t know enough about the menopausal transition,” said Claire Gill, founder and president of the National Menopause Foundation. “In our recent survey, over a third of respondents said they knew very little to almost nothing about menopause before experiencing symptoms and felt unprepared5. In order to best support women, we need to ensure there are accessible resources available, like the Clearblue® Menopause Stage Indicator that can give women a launch pad to be more in control of their journeys.”

The Clearblue® Menopause Stage Indicator is available for purchase at retailers across the United States.
