Symptoms of Menopause
For most women, the first symptom of menopause is not a missing period. The earliest menopause symptoms can be mild and easy to miss, or they can be severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning. Hot flashes and night sweats are among the most common symptoms, but women can also experience breast tenderness, irritability, intercourse pain menopause, thinning hair, dry skin and other diverse symptoms. Dr. Shoreh Ershadi has identified 45 symptoms of menopause.
Managing your symptoms can be one of the best ways to take control of your health and your life during this often stressful time. Lifestyle changes can be extremely effective. Many women find that by carefully evaluating their diet and monitoring their nutrient intake they can avoid foods that trigger symptoms.

Natural supplements such as DON’T PAUSE can help restore hormone balance.
