Proper treatment and awareness programme needed for the Menopause says Senator

Fianna Fáil Senator Fiona O’Loughlin is calling for a proper menopause treatment programme for women and for menopause awareness programmes to be put in place in health and education. 

Speaking in the Seanad today, Senator O’Loughlin commented, “The floodgates have opened in terms of the menopause and I thank all the women who have been brave enough to share their stories on RTÉ’s Liveline.  

“Women are being misdiagnosed. They have been denied treatment and given incorrect treatment.  We need to change that for women who will go through the menopause in future. We need to ensure they get proper treatment and we have awareness programmes in place in health and education.”
