Menopause Symptoms

Menopause is a natural biological process that all women experience as they age. It typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 and signals the end of a woman’s reproductive years. During menopause, hormone production by the ovaries slows down and eventually stops. .

The most common symptoms of menopause are:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain
  • Decrease in libido
  • Decrease in fertility

Other, less common symptoms of menopause can include joint pain, urinary incontinence, headaches, feeling dizzy or faint, and changes in the skin and hair. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, and may vary from woman to woman.

Make sure to talk to your doctor if you have questions or concerns about menopause and the symptoms associated with it. Your doctor can help you develop a treatment plan that works for you and can help you manage your symptoms.
