Menopause symptoms can begin as much as a decade before a woman’s final period. This period is known as perimenopause, and a woman is considered to have reached menopause once she has gone a year without menstrual cycles. The ovaries gradually slow hormone production, which can trigger many different symptoms. In fact, Dr. Shoreh Ershadi of the AntiAging Institute of California has identified 45 different symptoms of menopause.
Menopause and anxiety are closely linked. The hormonal changes of menopause often lead to psychological symptoms. Women may be more prone to irritability, mood swings, depression and brain fog. These can be associated with the physical symptoms of menopause, such as insomnia or night sweats that interfere with a good night’s sleep, or they may occur independently.
Women with a history of depression, premenstrual syndrome or postpartum depression may be more likely to suffer from the emotional or mental symptoms of menopause. While these symptoms can be extremely distressing, they are also quite treatable.
