Millennials entering menopause? Survey exposes what many young women don’t know
While there is no shortage of observations regarding millennials and the way they are changing the social and economic landscape, a new survey has found a majority of the generation doesn’t know much about perimenopause and menopause, symptoms of which some of them are beginning to experience.
A survey conducted by Amberen and Wakefield Research surveyed 500 menopausal women in the United States to analyze their knowledge about menopause and the impact it has on their daily lives. Researchers found 73 percent of survey recipients believed menopause started earlier than they realized or expected it would. More than half of those surveyed didn’t understand how perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause differ from each other.
