What Causes Menopause?
Perimenopause and menopause affect the level of hormones released by the body. This can lead to a hormonal imbalance which is the source of many of the signs of menopause. Not all women who undergo menopause experience all these symptoms, but if you are in your 40s and 50s and have these signs, there is a good chance you are undergoing menopause.
What Are the Symptoms?
No one symptom or group of symptoms comes with menopause, but some of the most common include:
- Hot flashes
- Weight changes
- Mood changes
- Night sweats
Other symptoms can include vaginal dryness, incontinence, and increased heart rate. These changes can have a major impact on your day-to-day comfort and overall happiness.
