The hidden symptoms of menopause!

Did you know there are over 40 recognised symptoms of the menopause?

I thought this table might be useful to share because some symptoms are not always talked about and so, it can have you doubting if some are even connected.

If you are currently experiencing any of these symptoms, then being able to rate them in this way could help you to decide if you need to seek some expert support.

It is intended to reassure you not frighten you, there is help available.
