Menopause Q & A

Understanding Menopause and Its Effects

Menopause is the stage in a woman’s life when menstruation ceases, signifying the conclusion of her reproductive capability. This transition occurs after a full year without a menstrual period, with the average age of menopause in the United States being 52. The decline in estrogen and progesterone production by the ovaries, crucial hormones regulating the menstrual cycle and reproductive health, contributes to the emotional and physical changes experienced during menopause. At WCWCW, our expertise in reproductive psychiatry allows us to comprehend the intricate interplay between hormones and mood during this life phase, empowering us to provide effective psychiatric care.

Recognizing Symptoms and the Need for Specialized Care

Menopause can manifest through a range of symptoms impacting both physical and emotional well-being. Common indications include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, mood changes, depression, low libido, and vaginal dryness. The severity of these symptoms varies, and if they significantly affect your daily life, seeking professional assistance can be highly beneficial.
