What are the symptoms of menopause?

Symptoms of menopause can begin 2-5 years before one's final menstrual period. Symptoms, duration and severity vary depending on the individual. Some women may have only a few very light symptoms and others may experience extremes.

When menopausal symptoms begin, this is considered the perimenopausal (climacteric) period. Symptoms at this point include hot flashes, vaginal dryness and mood swings. Irregular menstrual cycles can also begin at this point. Typically symptoms improve with time.

Common menopause symptoms:

  • Irregular menstrual period
  • Mood swings
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Insomnia
  • Concentration problems/memory loss
  • Changes in sexual desire
  • Depression
  • Irritability
