Menopause is a source of concern, uncertainty, and embarrassment for many women. It has become a taboo even though every woman goes through it. Some women easily transition but others find the symptoms distressing. Sometimes these symptoms can cause real difficulties in a women’s life, becoming a serious condition if left unattended. It is important to understand the symptoms of menopause so that you have a better chance of managing them.
