Menopause will be different for each woman. Some women breeze through this change without much notice. Other women suffer from the side effects of menopause, such as night sweats, hot flashes, and sleepless nights. Most women are somewhere in between these two extremes.
Managing this period of your life does not have to be difficult. The best solution to dealing with the changes in your body is to speak to your gynecologist. Your doctor will be able to provide you with accurate information about this process as it pertains to you and your symptoms.
