Some women go through the menopause with little impact on their daily life. But others experience symptoms that can last for several years and have a negative impact on their performance and attendance at work. A bad night’s sleep can affect concentration, while heavy periods or hot flushes can be physically distressing and embarrassing. The psychological effects can also impact relationships at work. For some, the symptoms are so severe that women are forced to leave their job altogether.   

Most women experience that menopause between the age of 45 – 55 – but some start experiencing symptoms much earlier, the Perimenopause. Symptoms can include sleeplessness, memory loss, headaches, depression and anxiety. To name but a few. Around half find it difficult to cope with work during the menopause.
