The menopausal transition is unique to each individual woman. Some women experience minor symptoms while others suffer from a variety of different ailments. Not only can this drop in hormones lead to uncomfortable symptoms, but it also puts women at a greater risk of developing certain diseases, such as osteoporosis and heart disease. Common symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, anxiety and/or depression, vaginal dryness, thinning skin, and urinary changes. There are both pharmaceutical options like bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and alternative treatment options.
