'It will increase awareness of menopause and the symptoms associated with it and encourage open conversation to reduce the stigma associated with this phase of life'

The Government has launched an awareness campaign around the menopause.

The aim is to provide a better understanding of menopause and allow women to access information and supports so that they can proactively manage their experience.

New research commissioned by the Department of Health highlights the "big impact" the menopause is having on the everyday lives of 86% of women.
