Menopause
Signs and Symptoms

Common symptoms of menopause include:

  • Reduced fertility
  • Changes in menstrual periods
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Insomnia
  • Emotional changes
  • Libido changes

Most of these symptoms will stop after menopause is completed.

However, menopause also increases the risk of contracting heart disease or osteoporosis, which continue after menopause is completed. Although not associated with menopause, cancer is associated with advancing age in women.
