Menopausal Symptoms

Menopause usually occurs around 51 years of age however, for clinical reasons menopausal symptoms can occur at any time. The  changes in hormone levels during peri menopause and menopause particularly the decline in oestrogen, lead to acute menopausal symptoms.  Many women experience vasomotor symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats. Some women also report vaginal dryness and psychological symptoms, including anxiety, tiredness, poor sleep, forgetfulness and mood swings.

Menopausal symptoms are very common, and depending on their severity, can have a major impact on quality of life, health and wellbeing, as well as productivity.
