n it came to severity.

These findings underline the importance of talking to women about the severity of symptoms and the distress they cause as well as how frequently they occur.

The researchers note that a number of previous studies have identified hot flashes or flushes as the biggest problem for menopausal women.

Our study looked at women who were relatively young and the time lapse since their last period was shorter than in a number of previous studies explains Dr Berg. It is known that hot flashes or flushes increase as the menopause progresses and emerging data suggests that other symptoms are more severe in the earlier stages.

A woman is said to have reached the menopause when she has not had a period for a year. During this phase, known as the perimenopause, the hormonal and biological changes associated with the menopause begin and many women experience both physical and emotional symptoms.

What our study clearly shows is that women who are entering the menopause find sleep difficulties a frequent and distressing problem and that this problem was consistently reported by women in the sample, regardless of when they had had their last period concludes Dr Berg.
