BBC Menopause Survey
Survey on the impact of the Menopause on UK Women 50 – 60 Years    

• A quarter (25%) of the women who had experienced menopause reported that it had made them want to stay at home… while almost as many (23%) said it had reduced their enjoyment of life

• Amongst those who had experienced the menopause, nearly half (48%) of the women in the younger age group (50-55 years old) told us that their mental health/mood was affected… compared to the just 40% of women aged 56- 60.

• Amongst those who had experienced menopause, and who were working at the time, 70% say they did not make their employer aware that they were experiencing symptoms.

• Just over a third (36%) of those polled who were experiencing menopause symptoms had not visited their GP to talk about it.
