Menopause and You
The transition to menopause is known as perimenopause. During this time, a woman may experience a wide variety of symptoms as the ovaries begin to make less estrogen. A woman reaches full menopause when the ovaries stop releasing eggs all together.
Perimenopause may last one to two years before full menopause is reached, and can yield a wide variety of changes to the body. Our team at Arrowhead Women’s Center can help you to understand and better manage the changes that are associated with perimenopause. Keep reading our Arrowhead Women’s Center blog to learn more about the signs and symptoms related to menopause, and how our team of physicians and staff can help you throughout the process.
What Are the Symptoms of Menopause?
While no two women will experience the same symptoms related to perimenopause and menopause, there are symptoms that are more common than others. Some of the most common menopause symptoms include:
- Irregular periods
- Hot flashes which make the whole body feel hot
- Cold sweats
- Night sweats
- Dry vaginal tissue
- Vaginal infections
- Increase in urinary tract infections (UTI’s)
- Fat gain and muscle loss
