Hot flushes? Night sweats? Feeling irritable, anxious and fatigued? You may feel angry or embarrassed about hot flushes occurring in social situations? Or that broken sleep is making you snappy or frustrated at your lack of memory and concentration.
You are not alone. The average age of the menopause is 51, but hormones can start changing from 45 years old and sometimes younger.
The menopause can often be a difficult time in a woman’s life. It often comes when a woman is under a huge amount of pressure and having these symptoms are the last thing you need.
You may have teenage children who are pushing boundaries, elderly relatives who are becoming increasingly dependent, or you are at the top of your career where you need to excel and be on top form. There may be a huge amount of pressure on you and the last thing you need is for your body to be in a hormonal crisis!
You want to be cool, calm and in control.
