Common Signs Of Menopause

No matter what euphemism you call it—“The Change” being, of course, the most common—menopause is a major event in a woman’s life that can also be very emotional (http://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/transcripts/1292_women-s-health-questions). Your hormones are thrown massively out of whack during this time and you’re ending a major stage in your adult life—one that has been with you for forty years or more.

If you have these symptoms and then go several months without a period, then chances are you have hit that point in your life. You should consult with your physician to find out about how this will impact your life from here on and how to handle some of the symptoms.
