‘There is little evidence for or against benefit with other herbs commonly used for menopausal symptoms, such as dong quai, evening primrose oil, ginseng, wild yam, chaste tree, hops and sage.’

‘Unproven’: Alternative remedies such as black cohosh and red clover are taken to ease hot flushes

Women are being warned they could damage their health with ‘unproven’ herbal remedies to treat menopausal symptoms.

Hundreds of thousands stopped HRT after health scares in favour of alternative therapies but there is ‘no strong evidence’ of their effectiveness, according to an independent review by experts.

Remedies such as black cohosh, red clover, Dong quai and ginseng are taken to ease hot flushes, sleeplessness and low sex drive because they are perceived as natural products without risk, says a report in the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin.

But editor Dr Ike Iheanacho warns they may not necessarily be safe.

He said: ‘In reality, however, herbal medicines have pharmacological actions, and so can cause unwanted side effects and have potentially dangerous interactions with other medicines, both herbal and conventional.’

The safety of such products has been ‘generally under-researched, and information on potentially significant herb-drug interactions is limited’, he added.

More than 200 alternative remedies exist, yet the review of 26 published studies found little good quality evidence of their effectiveness and safety when used through the menopause.

About 40 per cent of women seeking treatment for the menopause are estimated to use complementary therapies alongside – or instead of – Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Among those used are wild yam extract, chaste tree, hops, sage leaf, and kava kava which was banned in the UK after reports of liver damage.

Previous research has also linked black cohosh, a relative of the buttercup, with an increased risk of liver damage and breast cancer.

A 53 year-old Australian woman who had taken the herb for three months suffered liver failure and needed a transplant.

Dr Iheanacho said: ‘The results from clinical trials of black cohosh are equivocal, some suggesting benefit while others suggest none.’

‘There is no convincing evidence that red clover extracts have a beneficial effect.

‘There is little evidence for or against benefit with other herbs commonly used for menopausal symptoms, such as dong quai, evening primrose oil, ginseng, wild yam, chaste tree, hops and sage.’

Published studies are often poorly designed, include too few participants, or don’t last long enough to be of real value, said the review.

Such remedies can interact with prescribed medications such as the blood-thinning agent warfarin and antidepressants. which may stop them working.

‘Healthcare professionals should ask women routinely if they are taking any such products,’ said Dr Iheanacho.

The safety watchdog, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), has given a Traditional Herbal Registration to Menoherb, which contains black cohosh, under a scheme designed to boost the safety of herbal products on sale.

Nutritionist Maryon Stewart, of the Women’s Nutritional Advisory service, which helps women through the menopause, said: ‘We see women with problems caused by the menopause and they want help from herbal remedies and nutrition at this stage in life and beyond.

‘This review is scare-mongering because there is published evidence for many of these remedies, including red clover and soya supplements.

‘Women may take HRT for a period of time, but want to help themselves build better bones, heart and health in the longer term.

‘Contrary to this review, there are some good studies that women can have confidence in’, she added.

‘Also, the efficacy and safety of such products is generally under-researched, and information on potentially significant herb-drug interactions is limited. Healthcare professionals should ask women routinely if they are taking any such products.’

The National Institute of Medical Herbalists said herbal remedies are generally safe for symptoms of the menopause but advised women to consult one of their members before deciding what to take.

President Jane Gray said: ‘In contrast to many conventional treatments such as HRT, herbal medicines have a history of use by humans going back thousands of years.

‘There is a wealth of empirical and traditional evidence of the efficacy of these treatments.

‘Close reading of the article shows that many of the trials did show improvements – “sage and alfalfa were given to thirty women with menopausal hot flushes and nightsweats and symptoms disappeared in twenty women”.’

She said the National Institute of Medical Herbalists helped to fund a pilot trial on the efficacy of menopausal treatments which ‘sadly the authors of this article have failed to quote’.

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynacologists has warned that many herbal remedies and supplements have not been properly tested.

It says alternative preparations may reduce symptoms by 50-60 per cent, which is ‘considerably lower’ than HRT, which results in 80-90 per cent fewer symptoms.

What are the signs of menopause?

Menopause officially occurs 12 months after the last period. However, the menopause transition, known as perimenopause, occurs when the cycle begins to slow down and the body prepares for menopause. This period can begin up to 10 years before menopause — usually between the ages of 45 and 55. In other words, menopause symptoms can affect women for over a decade in some cases.

Wondering if you’re experiencing the first signs of perimenopause? Here are some of the signs to look out for.

  • Irregular periods
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep disruption
  • Mood swings

As one 2008 study in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology showed, changes in period frequency can vary, but typically, periods cycles are shorter than 21 days in the early menopause transition, before they become longer than 36 days later in the transition.

According to Harvard Medical School, vaginal dryness can affect 50% of women after menopause. According to a 2019 study, hot flushes affect roughly 85% of women during menopause, and they tend to become worse as perimenopause goes on. As a 2005 study showed, between a quarter and a half of women experience sleep disturbances during menopause.

Not a lot is known about how menopause leads to changes in mood, but experts believe it is linked to hormonal changes and physical symptoms of menopause. But, according to Harvard Medical School, women with a history of “mood issues” are more likely to experience depression or anxiety during menopause.
