Thousands are affected by critical medication shortages, with some saying they are on the verge of quitting work and others feel suicidal.

More than one million women in the UK are now estimated to be taking hormone replacement therapy – a doubling in recent years.

It relieves symptoms of menopause, including brain fog, low sex drive and hot flashes.

But doctors have warned of shortages that could last well into the summer.

Producers are now increasing production – and ministers are looking at rationing to even out supplies.

Davina spoke out to promote her documentary Sex, Mind and the Menopause, saying: “We do not know what is behind the HRT deficiency.

“But I mean, this idea of ​​blaming women – ‘Oh, more women asking for it?’ – drives me crazy.

“There has been a gradual growth. You can easily plan the production for that.

“HRT deficiency is unacceptable and let’s hope it is fixed very soon.”

The Sun’s Fabulous Menopause Matters campaign has highlighted the importance of HRT.

Davina said she wished she had known about the treatment earlier, adding: “It would have been life-changing.

“I would not have fought on for three years and felt lost, lonely and scared.”

  • Davina McCall: Sex, Mind and the Menopause is on Channel 4 on Monday at 9 p.m.
