A new survey has revealed that just six per cent of women were supported in any way by their employer while dealing with menopause symptoms.

With symptoms including brain fog, uncomfortable hot flushes, low mood and anxiety, going through the menopause can have a massive impact on a woman’s personal and work life.

The Benenden Health report surveyed 1,000 people who have either experienced, or are currently experiencing menopausal symptoms, and found that 28% admitted they performed less well at work as a result of their symptoms.

The survey is part of the ‘Time for a check in’ campaign, launched by Benenden Health and Channel 4, which seeks to remove the stigma around the topic and ensure that people have the targeted information, treatments and tools they need to combat its impact.

Cheryl Lythgoe, Matron at Benenden Health, said, “The menopause can be a difficult time for some, with hormone changes leading to symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, low mood and anxiety.

“Although our research shows that a lot of people take on the challenge of the menopause alone, it’s important to remember that this doesn’t have to be the case and it’s really important that as a society, we are able to open up the conversation to include families, friends and workplaces, so that we can mitigate the impact of the menopause in all aspects of people’s lives.

“If you do believe you are being affected by symptoms of the menopause, or have concerns about this happening – such as believing it to be delayed – it’s also important to speak to your GP, who will be able to support you during your menopausal journey.”
