From hot flushes and night sweats to vaginal dryness and mood swings, the menopause is a tricky time in a woman’s life.
The menopause occurs when a woman’s oestrogen levels decline and her ovaries stop releasing an egg every month. This signals the end of periods and leaves a woman unable to get pregnant naturally.
While most suffer between 45 and 55 years old, one in 100 women start the menopause at under 40. A lucky few manage to escape without much discomfort. However, almost all women battle symptoms as they go through ‘the change’, with one in 10 even enduring the discomfort for up to 12 years.
