One in four women currently going through menopause have considered leaving work due to their symptoms. Some studies also suggest that some work environments may make menopause symptoms worse. Despite this, the majority of women are unwilling to disclose menopause related health problems to their line managers due to the taboo surrounding the subject and the fact that there is a lack of interest in addressing the subject in many workplaces.
