THE BEST OF YOU IS YET TO COME
During the menopause, about 60% of women will experience mild to moderate symptoms; 20% of women will have symptoms so severe that they significantly interfere with daily life; and 20% of women will have no symptoms at all.

On the BBC iPlayer programme, The Truth About The Menopause, it was reported that with talking therapies, a 64% decrease in hot flushes was experienced by women.

Reducing stress can have the opposite effect.
