The BBC series on the Breakfast programme on the menopause highlighted the lack of information that women can access about the impact of this change in their bodies.
The menopause is when a woman stops having periods and is no longer able to get pregnant naturally.
Common symptoms include:
- hot flushes
- night sweats
- vaginal dryness and discomfort during sex
- difficulty sleeping
- low mood or anxiety
- reduced sex drive (libido)
- problems with memory and concentration
