Influence of shift work on menopausal vasomotor symptoms, an analysis of the Australian Longitudinal Study of Women’s Health
With the ageing workforce, many women are and will find themselves managing menopause transition during their employment. As a frequent complaint of menopausal transition, vasomotor symptoms including hot flushes and night sweats pose challenges to various aspects of women’s life such as sleep disturbance and social inconvenience. Shift work is a well-recognised occupational risk with wide implications on individuals’ health. Although much attention has been paid to understanding its impact on reproductive health outcomes including spontaneous pregnancy loss and menstrual disturbance, little is known about whether and how much shift work affects menopausal vasomotor symptoms in middle aged women.
