Half of UK women don’t feel prepared for the menopause

More needs to be done to further educate UK women about the menopause, with 51% saying they were unaware of the perimenopause until they started to have symptoms, found research by cosmetics company Avon.

A staggering 47% did not feel prepared for either perimenopause or the menopause when it started, and more than two fifths (42%) of women did not expect perimenopause when it began to occur, found the “Menopause - Too Little Information… The Global Conversation Deficit” Report.
