Menopausal women 'need more support' in the workplace
The menopause can cause hot flushes, mood swings and even depression, and for some women it can last for more than a decade.
The government's Business Champion for Older Workers, Ros Altmann, says it can also have an economic impact, as a lack of support is forcing some women out of their jobs.
She is due to publish a report calling for more help for women coping with the menopause.
