Menopause

Symptoms and Signs of Menopause

A reduction in estrogen and irregular periods cause most of the symptoms and signs of menopause. While there are common symptoms, each woman experiences different types of symptoms and to varying degrees. These are some of the most common signs of menopause:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats (hot flashes at night) and other sleep disturbances
  • Vaginal dryness or atrophy
  • Pelvic muscle relaxation
  • Cardiac palpitations
  • Dizziness
  • Paresthesias (numbness, prickling, tingling and heightened sensitivity)
  • Increased facial hair growth
  • Thinning hair on the head
  • Mood swings associated with stress and environmental factors
