5 Most Common Complaints of Menopause

The disruption of the production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone hormones can lead to fluctuations are referred to as menopause. Menopause is an important event in women’s health and can cause the body to react in strange ways. Here are the five most common symptoms/complaints of menopause.

1. Hot Flashes

Women’s health professionals, report that hot flashes are the most common symptom of menopause. Hot flashes are described as a sudden intense feeling of heat. The severity, duration and frequency vary widely. Most women agree, they are both frustrating and draining.

2. Vaginal Dryness

Almost all women suffer from this symptom during menopause. They complaints range from itching, burning and soreness to pain and light bleeding during intercourse. Frequent urgent needs to urinate are also symptoms experienced by many women.

3. Loss of Libido

When your hormone levels lower, so too do your levels in libido. Many women find this to be one of the more difficult symptoms to deal with as it affects both partners and their relationship.

4. Night Sweats

Similar to hot flashes, night sweats are pretty much the same thing, except they only occur when the woman is sleeping. Those that experience this symptom, will find themselves waking up drenched in sweat and unable to fall back asleep.

5. Irregular Periods

One of the more obvious symptoms, irregular periods it the primary symptom associated with menopause. Fluctuating hormone levels delay ovulation and therefore menstruation. It can be quite a shock for any woman that has received their period like clockwork for most of their lives, but it is an inevitable symptom and marks the end of your menstrual cycle’s lifetime.
