How can working menopausal women boost their confidence?

Menopause is the natural biological process that comes at the end of a woman’s reproductive years, where her hormones have decreased. Estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterone levels gradually decrease during the perimenopause, and drop dramatically as a woman reaches the menopause

While it is a normal part of aging, this sharp drop in hormones can cause a range of physical and emotional symptoms that can be incredibly difficult to manage. These symptoms may include loss of confidence, hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, brain fog, and sleep disturbances – all of which can cause issues with confidence particularly in the workplace. 

In fact, according to the recent survey by The Women and Equalities Committee, 67% of menopausal UK women feel that they are less confident in their abilities at work. For many women, menopause symptoms can significantly impact their quality of life and work performance. As such, it is important for working menopausal women to find ways to manage their symptoms and boost their confidence.

Understanding Menopause Symptoms

Before we discuss how to boost confidence during menopause, it is important to understand the symptoms of menopause. Menopause can affect women in different ways, and it is not uncommon for women to experience severe or debilitating symptoms that can impact their ability to work.

Hot flashes and night sweats can cause discomfort and disrupt sleep, leading to fatigue and decreased productivity. Mood changes, such as anxiety and depression, can also impact work performance and interpersonal relationships. These symptoms can have a knock-on impact on raises and promotions, as 4 in 5 employers do not consider menopause during annual appraisals with female employees.

How Can Hormone Replacement Therapy Help?

One way to manage menopause symptoms and boost confidence is through hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT can help to alleviate symptoms allowing women to feel more in control and confident in their daily lives.

Other Ways to Boost Confidence During Menopause

It’s important to look at menopause with a positive light. This is not just the end of one stage of life, it is also the beginning of a new stage. Altering perspective can aid in getting through this stage. For instance, look at it as freedom from the period – a positive transition!

In addition to HRT, there are several other ways that working menopausal women can boost their confidence. These may include:

Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise has been shown to improve mood and reduce stress levels, which can help to alleviate menopause symptoms. Exercise can also help to boost confidence by improving physical health and body image.

Practice Self-Care

Self-care is an important part of managing menopause symptoms and boosting confidence. Taking time for activities such as meditation, yoga, or reading can help to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.

Seek Support

It is important for working menopausal women to seek support from friends, family, and colleagues. This can help to reduce feelings of isolation and boost confidence.

Speak to a Professional

Working menopausal women may benefit from speaking to a professional, such as a therapist or counsellor, about their symptoms and how to manage them. This can help to provide a sense of control and confidence in managing menopause.

Menopausal women are the fastest growing demographic in the UK workforce with a third of the UK’s female population, around 13 million women, currently in the perimenopause or menopause stage of life. Menopausal age women between 45 and 54 make up 11% of the UK working demographic and 23% of all women in employment. Menopause, whilst a natural life transition that half the population will go through, has traditionally been a taboo subject particularly between men and women. A UCL-led study carried out in May 2021 found that 9 out 10 women were never educated about the menopause – it’s therefore no stretch to conclude that men have generally been even less informed on what to expect and how to deal with it, especially in the workplace.
Menopause symptoms can impact a woman’s sense of self, affecting her day-to-day activities, relationships, and home and working life. It can be a challenging time, both for the woman herself and for those close to her. Better education, much needed research, knowledge and understanding of symptoms, and noise in the press are all helping to normalise the subject and stop the stigma, but it can still be a potentially bewildering and embarrassing minefield for men to address. Menopause specialists Bodyline Medical Wellness Clinics have pulled together some tips for men to approach the subject of menopause below that might just come in useful.
