Menopause Symptoms

April 1, 2014

Menopause affects every woman differently.


Some women have no symptoms, but some women have changes in several areas of their lives. It's not always possible to tell if these changes are related to aging, menopause, or both.Some changes that might start in the years around menopause include:


• Irregular periods.

• Hot flashes.

• Trouble sleeping.

• Vaginal and urinary problems.

• Mood changes.

• Changing feelings about sex.

• Osteoporosis

• Other changes. You might become forgetful or have trouble focusing. Your waist could become larger. You could lose muscle and gain fat. Your joints and muscles also could feel stiff and achy.


The symptoms that come with menopause can seem challenging. You can feel better, though. Call our office, Downers Grove Ob/gyn and make an appointment with one of our doctors today for ways to ease this transitional time in your life.
