Menopause Symptoms

Since starting the menopause I have suffered with many of the common symptoms associated with the menopause such as hot flushes, night sweats, weight gain and mood swings. However, every woman is different and what is bad for one may not affect another at all.

Research shows that around 85% of women experience hormone symptoms in the first year or two of perimenopause. These occur due to oestrogen levels dropping.

Up to half continue to have them regularly, even after menopause. Why? Falling oestrogen levels cause a woman’s ‘thermoneutral’ zone to narrow – this can cause sweating to be triggered at lower temperatures and dilation of the peripheral blood vessels, which also increases heat.

When anxious or stressed, perimenopausal and menopausal women also release slightly higher amounts of the stress hormone noradrenaline, which increases body temperature and hormonal hot flashes.
