When a woman’s body prepares for the natural transition between fertility and infertility, hormonal fluctuations can lead to a whole host of uncomfortable and upsetting symptoms. Dr Yang said many women experienced some physical and emotional symptoms during menopause which is caused by hormonal imbalance. Typically, a woman will begin to experience menopause symptoms around her mid-40’s as her body’s reproductive capability comes to the end.
Dr Yang outline the most common menopause symptoms, such as cardiovascular dysfunction, irregular heartbeat, amenorrhea, depression, anxiety, irritability, panic disorder, electric shock sensation, headaches, allergies, night sweats, hot flashes, digestive problems, muscle tension, memory lapses, sleep disorders, fatigue, menopausal mood swings and so on. Many women feel like they are on a rollercoaster of emotions.
This prolonged stage of gradually falling and fluctuating hormone levels is called perimenopause, which can last upwards of two years before a woman’s final period. For most women, perimenopause symptoms end at menopause; however, some symptoms will continue. In some cases, menopause symptoms can last 10-20 years.

Hormonal fluctuations can lead to a mum experiencing sensations beyond her control. Mutual understanding is very important to cope with mood swings.
