Menopause is a natural biological process, not a medical illness. Even so, the physical and emotional symptoms of menopause can disrupt your sleep, drain your energy and — at least indirectly — trigger feelings of sadness and loss.

About Menopause

Even though menopause is not a disease, you shouldn’t hesitate to seek treatment for severe symptoms. Many effective treatments are available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy.

Menopause Symptoms

Technically, women don’t actually “hit” menopause until it’s been one year since their final menstrual period. On average, that happens at about age 51.

But in the months or years leading up to that point, you might experience these signs and symptoms:

  • Irregular periods
  • Decreased fertility
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flashes
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Medication fails to help

Things to Discuss

  • What are bioidentical hormones?
  • Where is my libido?
  • How can I get rid of these hot flashes?
  • Are irregular periods normal at my age?
  • Why am I crying all the time?
  • Will I get cancer if I use hormones?
  • How do I know if I am going through menopause?
