Our guide to owning your symptoms and treatment
An estimated 10 million women in the UK* — one third of the female population — are currently experiencing one or more symptoms associated with the menopause. We’ve pulled together a support guide for you.
Menopause is not an illness, it’s a completely natural stage of a woman’s life — but we know that doesn’t make it any easier to manage. What’s more, two women rarely experience it the same way, which means there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ menopause treatment. Some breeze through it with hardly any signs and symptoms of menopause, others enter premature menopause at an earlier age than average — but the majority of us fall somewhere in between. Hot flushes, night sweats and even itchy skin during menopause are things that affect most of us, and can leave us feeling less like ourselves.
Whether you are experiencing early signs of perimenopause, tackling menopause symptoms at work, or are looking for some natural treatment options, this space is for you. From advice on supporting your body through HRT, to guidance on how to nourish your body during the menopause, we’ve pulled together all the information you need to sail through this transitional phase.
