Common Menopause Symptoms

The following is a list of common menopause symptoms reported by women experiencing menopause or perimenopause. Menopause will affect every woman in a different way; some will have very few symptoms while others will experience very severe symptoms.

The key point to remember is that menopause is a completely natural cycle in a woman’s life. It is not a disease and it’s most certainly not something you have to struggle through alone.
