Menopause is a natural part of aging. Menopause affects each woman differently. Some of the more common symptoms women experience include:

  • Sagging skin, weight gain, bloating
  • Sleepless nights, night sweats, depression
  • Fragile bones, joint pain
  • Hot flashes, tension, mood changes
  • Migraine/severe headaches, fatigue
  • Mental confusion, memory loss
  • A dry vagina, breast tenderness
  • Irritability and loss of sex drive
  • Increasing anxiety

Menopause is the permanent end of menstruation and fertility and is a natural biological process, not a medical illness.  It is a phase in life where the body begins to change, which can put you at risk for certain illnesses.
