MENOPAUSE SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
Hot Flashes-A feeling of warmth, sometimes associated with flushing that spreads over the body and sometimes followed by perspiration.
Weight gain-Hormonal changes of menopause might make you more likely to gain weight around your abdomen than around your hips and thighs. But hormonal changes alone don't necessarily cause menopause weight gain. Instead, the weight gain is usually related to aging, as well as lifestyle and genetic factors.
Hair-loss-hair loss during menopause is caused by hormonal imbalance related to lower production of Estrogen and Progesterone
Vaginal dryness-Occurs when the tissues of the vagina are not well lubricated and healthy due to drop in estrogen level.
