Around 1.5 million women in the UK experience health problems when going through the menopause, such as hot flushes and night sweats, but are doctors always well-equipped to offer advice on treating these symptoms?
The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published new guidance on how medical professionals should treat and advise the 80 per cent of women who experience these symptoms as a result of the menopause.
This is the first time that the healthcare body has released guidance on dealing with these health complications, despite the fact that the majority of women experience such symptoms when they go through the menopause at an average age of 51.
Other common symptoms include changes in mood, joint pain, muscle pain and headaches. These can last for as many as four years after the date of their final period, but for some ten per cent of women, associated health problems can affect them for up to 12 years afterwards.
