Women dealing with menopausal symptoms may be missing work days.

Doctors say women with really bad symptoms which include insomnia, mood swings, and irritability may be so sick they have to call in sick.

This is the first study to look at menopause and work ability.

Authors in the journal Menopause say this does not apply to all women.

They add the good news is there are treatments for anxiety and depression, and to alleviate menopausal symptoms.
