Discussion about the effects of PPE and COVID-19 on menopausal women is long overdue.

Kydd, Angela

Authors



Abstract

The NHS employer's website has guidance for HR departments to produce policies on menopause in the workplace. However, despite the added pressure caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, little attention appears to have been paid to the impact of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on menopausal women. Wearing protective clothing can exacerbate heat stress which can worsen several of the symptoms, including hot flushes. The use of PPE has increased dramatically since March 2020. Yet, nearly two years into the pandemic, there appears to be little done to address this issue.
