Symptoms of Menopause
As you approach menopause, your body undergoes various changes that can cause discomfort and other symptoms. These symptoms are caused by the fluctuation of hormones in your body, particularly estrogen and progesterone. Some of the common symptoms of menopause include:
- Hot flashes: You may experience sudden and intense heat that spreads throughout your body, often accompanied by sweating and chills.
- Night sweats: You may wake up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat, disrupting your sleep.
- Vaginal dryness: The decrease in estrogen levels can cause your vaginal tissues to become thinner and drier, leading to discomfort during intercourse.
- Mood changes: You may experience mood swings, irritability, and depression.
- Fatigue: You may feel more tired than usual, even after a good night's sleep.
- Urinary problems: You may experience urinary incontinence or urgency, which weakening the pelvic muscles can cause.
