How Can I Tell If I am Dealing with Menopause?

Menopause is a normal and natural biological process. It is a process that ends female fertility, but with the proper treatment, women can still remain healthy, sexual, and vital.

Menopause does present a variety of physical and emotional symptoms that can disrupt your daily life, sleep, and your energy levels. Some women may experience anxiety or even feelings of sadness.

What Happens During Menopause?

After the body stops having a period, the levels of estrogen in your body will begin to decline. In addition, you will also stop producing the female hormone progesterone. This can amplify the mood swing, hot flashes, or other symptoms you may have experienced during perimenopause. This hormonal change can also trigger symptoms that you have not experienced yet.

What are the Symptoms of Menopause?

There are a variety of symptoms you may experience when dealing with menopause, including:
  • The absence of your period for at least 12 months
  • Night sweats
  • hot flashes
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Issues sleeping
  • Memory issues/Loss of focus
  • Vaginal or vulvar itching
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Bone loss
