Imagine, for a moment, that there was a health problem that affected a major part of your workforce.
And that the symptoms had a detrimental impact on confidence, energy levels, mood, concentration, creativity and productivity.
You’d be concerned, wouldn’t you? You’d want to do something to support your staff so that they can keep contributing to the success of your business, right?
Well…there is a health problem that affects millions of women in the UK workforce. And yet, most employers appear to be unaware, unwilling or unable, at present, to do anything to support those affected.
If you’re a woman in your mid to late forties chances are you’ve noticed a few changes recently. Not only in your body, but your mind too. Welcome to the Perimenopause!
The good news is you’re not going crazy and you’re definitely not alone. Declining oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels during the perimenopause years create hormonal imbalance with a host of unpleasant symptoms.

During the summer months, we can all feel the heat. But if you’re a woman going through perimenopause, hot flushes and night sweats can be a nightmare!
From the age of 35 onwards, our hormones can start to fluctuate. Oestrogen and progesterone start to decline as our ovaries live out their usefulness. But during this time oestrogen can be on a roller coaster, swinging from high to low. And it’s during the low times that we can get hot flushes (or flashes) and increased sweating at night. It’s thought that 70% of women at this time will suffer!
