7 Health  Issues  of  Menopause

Hot flashes and night sweats

These sudden, intense feelings of heat, often accompanied by sweating, are among the most common symptoms of menopause.

Vaginal dryness and discomfort 

Declining estrogen levels can cause the vaginal tissues to become dry, thin, and less elastic.

Sleep disturbances

Menopausal women may experience difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep due to hormonal fluctuations and night sweats.

Mood swings and irritability

Hormonal changes during menopause can affect neurotransmitters in the brain, leading to mood swings, irritability, and even anxiety or depression in some cases.

Changes in sexual function

Reduced estrogen levels can result in a decreased sex drive and changes in sexual function.


Estrogen helps maintain bone density, so lower estrogen levels during menopause can increase the risk of osteoporosis.

Heart health concerns

After menopause, women may have an increased risk of heart disease due to changes in cholesterol levels and other cardiovascular risk factors.
