What menopausal symptoms do you hate the most? 

Is it the constant tiredness and brain fog?

The annoying forgetfulness or feeling irritable all the time? 

Or do the night sweats and hot flushes drive you insane?

Are you suffering from hormonal migraines?

Unlike normal headaches, hormonal migraines are stronger and last longer, and can get worse during the menopause.

In some circumstances, migraines can cause blurred vision, light-headedness, and vomiting. As well as leaving your tired and without energy. 

Unsurprisingly, they can be totally debilitating, making you feel ‘washed out’ for two or three days. 

Night sweats, hot flushes, and mood swings - welcome to the rocky road of the menopause!

Here are some facts:

  • The average age for a woman to go through the menopause in the UK is 51.
  • However, the menopause can begin any time from your mid 40’s onwards.
  • It can be earlier for some women, especially if there are underlying medical conditions.
  • It lasts anything from a few years to longer. 
  • About 60% of women experience a range of symptoms. The major ones include hot flushes, night sweats, difficulty sleeping, reduced libido (sex drive), vaginal dryness, headaches, low mood/anxiety, but not all women will suffer the same symptoms. 

For many, it’s a really personal experience with its own unique range and severity of symptoms.

Tired of waking up a 3 am every morning? 

Do you feel like you’re awake more than asleep at night?

Declining oestrogen levels during menopause cause a range of symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats, which makes sleeping at night sometimes near impossible.

On top of that, a lack of restorative sleep makes you feel snappy, emotional and quite frankly exhausted the next day.

Surviving menopause while juggling kids and older parents

It’s exhausting looking after kids, taking care of an older parent, while also trying to work and keep the house clean - right?

Add menopausal symptoms like insomnia, hot flushes, and mood swings into the mix and it can feel downright overwhelming.
