When menopause begins, estrogen levels drop which often leads to hot flashes. Doctors refer to this as a vasomotor symptom which is believed to be caused by hormonal fluctuations. The recurrence of these symptoms generally last between two and five years but in some cases can even last decades. The following are also common symptoms of menopause:
- Night sweats
- Dizzy spells
- Vaginal dryness
- Reduced sex drive
- Genital or urinary disturbances
Sex hormones regulate the high metabolism levels necessary for reproduction. Their decrease leads to a sudden lowering of the metabolism and acceleration of the aging process. This results in a higher risk of osteoporosis and disabilities.
