Half of women who have gone through menopause did not tell their partner at first, according to a new survey conducted by TENA, a hygiene and health company, and OnePoll. Researchers surveyed 2,000 women who had gone through menopause or who were currently going through it. Almost 80 percent did not talk about their symptoms with other women in their families. Three-quarters did not discuss it with their doctors. Over 40 percent of the women felt completely alone. And among women who had yet to experience menopause, 4 of every 10 were dreading it. The survey suggests that affected women talk to their families, female friends, and their doctors to help with adjusting to these physical and life changes.
