What are the most helpful adjustments for negative symptoms of menstruation or menopause?

A survey of 2,000 workers has identified the workplace adjustments that may be most helpful for those experiencing negative symptoms of menstruation and menopause.

Of the individuals surveyed, 35% said that their work was affected by negative symptoms associated with menopause. A further 53% said they experienced workplace difficulties connected to menstruation. The symptoms most commonly experienced by survey respondents were:

  • Fluctuating mood.

  • Reduced concentration.

  • Lack of motivation.

  • Fatigue.

  • Pain.

The most helpful features for managing these symptoms, which are usually unavailable in the office, are a place to lie down, a hot bath and shower, and a dark or dimly lit space.

However, the most popular workplace adjustments that would attract employees experiencing these symptoms to work more days in the office include:

  • Fresh air.

  • Comfortable desk seating.

  • Natural light.

  • A private room.

  • Temperature-controlled spaces.

  • More focus rooms with fewer distractions.
