Menopause Symptoms and Types

In some women, menstrual flow comes to a sudden halt. More commonly, it slowly stops over time. During this time, the menstrual periods generally become either more closely or more widely spaced. This irregularity may last for 1 - 3 years before menstruation finally ends completely.

Common symptoms of menopause include:

  • Heart pounding or racing
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Skin flushing
  • Sleeping problems (insomnia)

Other symptoms of menopause may include:

  • Decreased interest in sex, possibly decreased response to sexual stimulation
  • Forgetfulness (in some women)
  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Mood swings including irritability, depression, and anxiety
  • Spotting of blood in between periods
  • Urine leakage
  • Vaginal dryness and painful sexual intercourse
  • Vaginal infections
