Hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings are the most common symptoms.  Menopause is also associated with weight gain, even among women who never had a problem with weight before. They often gain weight at this time but it probably has more to do with age than anything else.  My mom has never had this problem before, she used to be so slim but when she entered her menopausal stage, she started gaining weight. Another complain that I heard from her is vaginal dryness, caused by depleted estrogen.  Of all the symptoms, she found this most annoying.  According to her doctor, there are many ways to deal with this problem, soy and flaxseed have been shown to improve vagina moisture, so she’s giving it a try.  Hopefully, when my time comes, I’d be able to deal with menopause easily and with grace. 😀
