Menopause: The sign at night impacting 'many women' – 'what you can do'


There are also some less common symptoms that some women experience, including hair loss or brittle nails.

The NHS explains that about eight in every 10 women will have additional symptoms, alongside period changes, for some time before and after their periods stop.

It notes: “On average, most symptoms last around four years from your last period. However, around one in every 10 women experience them for up to 12 years.”

The NHS says: “It’s worth talking to a GP if you have menopausal symptoms that are troubling you or if you’re experiencing symptoms of the menopause before 45 years of age.”
