The Peri-Menopause usually lasts around 4 years but, in some cases, can last up to 10 years. It often begins in your 40’s and can include symptoms such as irritability, muscle tension, poor sleep, joint pains, dry skin (and many more). Often women report a general feeling of being ‘not quite right’.
The Menopause itself has 34 verified symptoms, which can affect all areas of our lives….it is not just hot flushes!
75% of women suffer symptoms and one in ten women consider leaving work due to their symptoms. It can be difficult to diagnose and even once diagnosed, getting the help that you may need can be a challenge.
There is conflicting information about treatment and it can be difficult to know where to turn for evidence based advice. This is where a Bronte Menopause Consultation can help.
