Symptoms of Menopause
Dr. Shoreh Ershadi has identified 45 symptoms of menopause. While women may not experience all 45 symptoms during their menopause experiences, most women experience at least a few of these symptoms in varying degrees. Symptoms can be mild enough to be easily missed, or they can be so severe that they interfere with healthy functioning. Symptoms of menopause can affect virtually all body systems.
- Sexual health
Menopause and vaginal dryness are closely linked. You may experience vaginal atrophy along with vaginal dryness, and these symptoms can be severe enough to prevent you from enjoying sexual activity.
- Skin health
Skin can become dry and easily irritated. It may become thin and prone to wrinkling due to inadequate hormones.
- Brain health
Brain fog, memory problems and mood swings are all common during menopause. Some women become forgetful while others experience more severe symptoms, such as anxiety, depression and irritability.
- Dental health
Gum disease and tooth loss become more common during menopause due to the changing hormone levels, which make gums more sensitive and vulnerable to bacterial infection, or gum disease.
- Overall health
Osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and weight gain all become more common during menopause. These conditions can be serious and even life-threatening.
