Don’t Sweat It!
If you’re a woman, menopause will happen. Period. #NoPeriod. That somewhat oddly-named mid-life change when your monthly menstrual cycle stops. Forever.
Typically occurring around the half-Century mark of life, and arguably better renamed women-Oh!-pause. It’s a maturity milestone that brings a range of unique and unwelcome sleep challenges. Let’s face it, between hot flushes, irritability and night sweats, the transition to menopause – which generally lasts three to five years – can feel like one long, hot and frustrating heat spell.
The Goodnight Co spend their waking hours curating innovative and evidence-based menopause sleep aid products and programs to help you create better days, through better sleep, at every life stage. We try to combat menopause sleep problems with natural remedies.
Importantly, if, like most women, you experience hot flushes and night sweats on the transition to menopause, it doesn’t mean you have to take it lying down (at least not tossing and turning, trying to get back to sleep)! It’s why we’re excited to have these menopause sleep drops.
Did you know? Hot flushes affect 75 to 85% of women during the transition to menopause. One hot flush lasts about three minutes and can happen multiple times, day and night. At night, hot flushes are often more severe and called night sweats. While short-lived, they can drench sheets and sleepwear, resulting in frequent awakenings and next-day fatigue.
For a small percentage of women, menopause can happen before the age of 40 (premature menopause) or 45 (early menopause).
