Listen, the best advice on aging is this: What’s the alternative? The alternative of course is death. And that’s a lot of shit to deal with. So I’m happy to deal with menopause. I’ll take it.

Symptoms

There are dozens of changes and symptoms associated with menopause found in five major categories: Vasomotor, Urogenital, Somatic, Psychological, and Sexual. Some of these are temporary whereas others can be permanent. Individual women often experience a range of symptoms from each category, varying from hot flashes and night sweats to anxiety and mood swings. Clinicians pair information about a woman’s symptoms with the date of the last menstrual period to determine whether a woman is likely to be in perimenopause, also known as the menopause transition.  Explore below or use the top menu ‘Changes and Symptoms’ to learn more and dig into the details of why they occur and what you can do about them.
