What are Menopause Symptoms?
Every woman is unique, and her menopause experience will be just as unique. Menopause is the period that marks the end of fertility and the cessation of menstrual cycles. Symptoms commonly occur as much as a decade or as little as several months or years before menstrual periods end. These symptoms can be diverse and may vary in severity from woman to woman. Dr. Shoreh Ershadi has identified 45 different menopause symptoms that commonly affect women from all walks of life, and she has designed DON’T PAUSE to meet women’s changing needs during this exciting but challenging time.
Your body may begin to change in the years leading up to menopause, or perimenopause. Symptoms can include:
- Menopause joint pain or swollen joints
- Headaches and body pain
- Irritability and mood swings
- Digestive problems
- Weight gain particularly in the abdomen
- Irregular periods and breast tenderness
- Hot flashes, cold flashes and night sweats
- Anxiety or depression
- Dry skin, thinning hair or brittle nails
Some women may only notice irregular periods or periods that have changed in length or heaviness. Other women may notice diverse symptoms that are hard to connect to menopause. Still others may suffer from extreme hot flashes and other symptoms that interfere with their ability to lead an active life. Managing these symptoms can help them once again enjoy all the activities they have loved and continue to live their lives on their own terms. Learn more by giving us a call.
