Menopause Signs & Symptoms

What are the common menopausal symptoms?

The most common menopausal symptoms are hot flushes, night sweats and vaginal dryness. Other symptoms that can occur include anxiety, poor memory, poor concentration, insomnia, fatigue, palpitations, decreased libido, muscle pains, crawling skin and urinary problems. Mild depression or other mood changes may occur during the time of physical and erratic hormonal changes (ie. in the peri menopause or time before the periods stop) but severe depression is not caused by the menopause nor is more frequent at the menopause. Women who have had a history of depression, either related to the post natal time or not, or who have a history of PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome), may be more sensitive to the changes taking place."
