Women experiencing changes in their gynecological health, such as heavier or lighter menstrual flow, should consult with their physician as soon as they notice unusual or persistent bleeding. This is especially important if the bleeding persists for more than three months or is otherwise unusual or worrying.
Hot flashes and night sweats may also be treated with medication; your physician can suggest a hormonal regimen in tablet, spray or patch form for you to take.

As women nearing late 40s approach menopause, their ovaries begin producing less progesterone and estrogen – hormones which regulate menstruation – which in turn causes periods to lighten or stop altogether. Periods may become lighter or shorter or may appear at shorter cycles – these changes are considered normal part of perimenopause stage.
Early in perimenopause, you may begin experiencing other menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes or vaginal dryness. Hormone therapy is designed to balance estrogen and progesterone levels to lessen menopausal symptoms – most effective at relieving hot flashes, night sweats and improving sleep as well as vaginal health.
Hot flashes are one of the hallmarks of menopause. These episodes typically consist of sudden surges of heat, flushing and sweating lasting several minutes and typically impact chest and face areas first.
Changes in mood are also common during perimenopause and menopause, due to fluctuating hormone levels that may leave women feeling anxious, sad or emotional.
Changes to one’s mood can have serious ramifications on a woman’s sex life and relationships. Many report feeling less sexually desirable and having difficulty engaging in sexual acts. Furthermore, mood swings may interfere with sleeping patterns, leading to fatigue or depression in their wake.
Night sweats are intense hot flashes that occur while sleeping and leave clothes and sheets wet with perspiration, distinct from regular perspiration which might occur if your room temperature is too warm or you wear too many blankets.
Night sweats should always be reported to a healthcare provider if they occur frequently or interfere with your sleep, and especially if they accompany other health changes.
Night sweats typically do not present serious medical concerns; however, if they accompany fever, sudden weight loss, or coughing it is wise to seek medical advice immediately.
Many women experience weight gain during and after menopause, often due to decreased oestrogen levels and age-related loss of muscle mass, which lowers metabolism. Poor sleep or unhealthy eating patterns could also play a factor.
Diet, exercise and menopausal hormone therapy can all work to combat weight gain. Alcohol should also be limited. Although making changes like these may be challenging if other life pressures arise; if necessary seek advice from your physician.

Under 30 years old, our bones tend to accumulate more new bone than they reabsorb – this creates peak bone mass of maximum strength and density. Once we hit menopause when estrogen levels start dwindling, bone resorption outpaces bone formation resulting in bone loss accelerated further by menopausal estrogen depletion.
Osteoporosis increases the risk of broken (fractured) bones. Women tend to be affected by it more due to having thinner and less dense bones; however it can affect men too, particularly if their family history includes osteoporosis or fractures.
