8 Things to Know About Menopause

1. Simply understanding what’s happening, and it’s a natural part of life, can be reassuring. Although there’s still much to learn about menopause, such as what exactly causes a hot flash, more is understood every day. One thing is very clear, however — there isn’t a single solution for the menopausal symptoms that women experience.

2. Today, more than ever, treatments for menopause are personalized and individualized. The most effective treatment plans are based on women’s own symptoms, medical and family history, and personal beliefs and preferences.

3. With hormone therapy, for example, one size does not fit all. Some women may never need it. But for women whose symptoms are troublesome enough for them to consider hormone therapy, the regimen, dose and route of administration may vary depending on the specific circumstances.

4. It’s becoming clear that menopausal symptoms aren’t as limited in duration as was previously thought. It’s now understood that hot flashes and night sweats last for an average of seven years. This is why it’s important to find a solution that works for you, as the symptoms may be around for a while.

5. Even more bothersome than hot flashes and night sweats can be some of the other signs and symptoms related to menopause. These may include weight gain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, mood changes and sexual function changes. Understanding what is happening to your body and what you can do about it is key.

6. For some women, menopause may come early. Symptoms may be especially severe, and unless there’s a clear reason to avoid it, hormone therapy is particularly important to prevent long-term health consequences.

7. Some women may have very bothersome menopausal symptoms, but are either unable or choose not to take hormone therapy. For them, there are effective nonhormonal options for managing symptoms.

8. Every day, physicians at the Mayo Clinic Women’s Health Clinic see women with hormonal and sexual health concerns. These doctors have devoted their clinical and research careers to helping women through this life phase, creating many resources through which to share their findings.


“Understanding what is happening to your body and what you can do about it is key. I often tell my patients, ‘The rules of your body have changed and no one told you.’ That’s why this book was written: To tell you what’s happening to you and what you can do about it.”
