Menopause transition cycle

Winner of Innovate UK, Fast Start Competitive Award September 2022.​

Founded in May 2022, TaraCares is an AI HealthTech start-up committed to addressing unmet global health needs in menopause awareness, diagnosis, and management.

We’re using cutting-edge AI technologies, clinical excellence, and academic research partnerships to develop a precision health platform that promotes an evidence-led, individualised, and scientific approach to understanding menopause.

We exist to make menopause care safe, inclusive, accessible, and affordable because we believe everyone deserves equal care for their menopause health and well-being.

What we do

Tackling the 3Ss of Menopause with 3Ts from TaraCares

We are leading a safe and inclusive future for equitable menopause health and wellbeing by creating it with science in action for every person assigned female at birth (AFAB).


Research-based and validated scientific information is scarce and women in menopause transition are relying on the internet and social media such as Tik Tok or friends and family to understand their symptoms. Individual differences in menopause experience due to socio-ethnic factors, medical history, family history, and lifestyle factors make it a heterogenous and complex phenomenon.


Lack of medical expertise in post-reproductive medicine, urgent need for more research, as well as lack of relevant data for clinical decision-making and diagnosis when menopause symptoms could overlap with other health conditions leads to misdiagnosis as well as non-adherence to menopause clinical care guidelines published by the National Institute of Care and Excellence. Menopause has become an important public health issue, as such, it is featured as priority research guidance by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NG23, QS143).


Hormone Replacement Therapy is the GOLD standard being offered for symptom relief and to prevent secondary health conditions. There is a diverse range of hormonal therapy available, but its suitability needs to be determined by a patient’s individual factors especially Cancer survivors, patients who have undergone reproductive surgeries, and are diagnosed with mental health.

A message from the Founder and CEO

We imagine a world where every female receives the care and companionship she needs, regardless of her health, family, and socio-economic status
For integrated menopause care, there are 3 key challenges that we are tackling – Misinformation, Misdiagnosis, and Mismanagement. We unite academic research, clinical excellence, and computational science to enable safe and inclusive menopause.
_ Jyoti Sharma

We are solving the problem through science in action for generations to come!

We are not selling hormone-testing kits, gels, creams, nutrition supplements, hormones, or your personal data under the guise of a menopause start-up.

Menopause Is Not Just Age Related Or Hot Flushes

Hormonal Changes

Reproductive and hormonal changes occur throughout a person’s lifetime.. Menopause is a natural transition and developmental stage for a naturally healthy woman when she begins to transform from being fertile to non-fertile.

Individual Differences

A woman’s body is as unique as a snowflake! Just a few factors that make your menopause health unique are – lifestyle, contraceptive and reproductive choices, family history, medical history, ethnicity, socio-economic status, nutrition among others.

Early Menopause

A menstruating female can be diagnosed with early menopause due to genetic, developmental factors, or induced from medication, reproductive surgeries or acute stressful life events producing hormonal shifts in the natural menstrual cycle.

With You From Puberty To Post Menopause

Menopause transition

We are changing the conversation

Menopause is not a uniform experience and can happen to a woman at any age.

Many people believe that Menopause only affects people assigned female at birth (AFAB) when they enter the later stages of their reproductive journey.

The popular belief (myth) is that there is a definite number (34, 45, 51…..) of symptoms experienced by each woman.

Indian-British Founder. Innovator. Advocate.

TaraCares was founded by Jyoti Sharma who brings 22 years of international intrapreneurial experience in management consulting, sales, and delivery of large-scale human-centered technology-enabled digital transformations with SAP, Microsoft, Qualtrics, and other software technology firms. Jyoti has worked with clients across the Americas and Europe, the Middle East, India, and Africa (EMEIA), and is an SAP Press bestselling author and international speaker on digital transformation. She specializes in Life Sciences and has worked with Johnson & Johnson (USA), Bayer (Germany), Grifols (Spain), Pfizer (UK), GSK (UK), and other pharmaceutical companies. She holds a Bachelor’s in Psychology, MBA, MA in Economics, and graduated in MSc Psychology (health) in October 2022 from the University of Westminster, London. She is a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). The pandemic forced Jyoti to re-evaluate her true calling while leading a strategic pandemic response initiative for the EMEIA board at Ernst & Young (EY) working with 80+ countries to resolve the COVID crisis. In December 2021, while going through the partnership process at EY, she decided to close a thriving consulting career as a high-growth executive leader and went back to school to complete her MSc in Psychology with merit from the University of Westminster, London. While discussing PhD offers from prestigious universities in England (University College London, King’s College London), and Australia (Monash University), she arrived at the tough conclusion that a conventional PhD was not equipped to translate her ambition for scale and impact that she wanted from her research for ground-breaking innovation in women’s health. TaraCares was founded in May 2022 to address the public health challenge of menopause, foster a respectful dialogue through global collaboration, and offer AI-driven solutions to enhance the menopause transition experience and accelerate physiological and psychological health improvements for women and individuals AFAB. “TaraCares is a living tribute to my single parent, mother and my late father, I celebrate in embodied value-led actions.”

Awareness Ai will be used by individuals who benefit from:

Individualised reproductive and post-reproductive transition profile

Symptom tracking
