What Should I Expect During Menopause?
Technically speaking, menopause is the time in a woman’s life when she stops having a menstrual cycle while approaching the end of her childbearing years. If you are experiencing menopause or perimenopause (changes during the years leading up to menopause), you know there’s more to it than a clinical definition.
During menopause and perimenopause you deserve an OB/GYN who will take the time to listen, understand and approach your particular circumstances with compassion.
While some women notice few changes in their bodies during these years, others find it difficult to cope with menopausal symptoms which can include:
- Hot flashes
- Sleep problems
- Vaginal and urinary tract changes
- Bone and other body changes
- Emotional changes
- Sexual problems
