Menopausal women want more support

16th February 2012

Researchers from Aberdeen University say that menopausal women prefer non-medical treatment for their symptoms including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements but they also want more support from their GP.

Writing in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, they surveyed 4,400 women aged 45 to 54 in north east Scotland on menopausal symptoms and management.

Nearly half (46.7%) experienced hot flushes, 46.4% night sweats and 28.2% vaginal dryness. One third of women thought their GP was very supportive, however, 34% wanted to have more support while a fifth of women wanted more support from their spouse or partner.
