Men try out ‘deeply unpleasant’ menopause hot flushes with simulation vest

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Men try out ‘deeply unpleasant’ menopause hot flushes with simulation vest” – below is their description.

Male MPs mopped their foreheads while trying out a vest that simulates menopause hot flushes as part of an event raising awareness of the UK’s acute shortages of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) products.

Wes Streeting, Stephen Kinnock and Nick Thomas-Symonds were among the politicians who tried out the device fitted with heated pads that mimics one of the most common and unpleasant symptoms.

‘It’s a horrible feeling’, said  Carolyn Harris MP, co-chair of the menopause taskforce, who sponsored the event and uploaded the videos of the men’s reactions
