34 Menopause Symptoms? – You got to be kidding!

Are there really 34 Menopause Symptoms? Well, you’ll be the judge of it. The main point is that women experience various, sometimes strange and unexplainable symptoms during this time.

In any case, the good news is that most women do not suffer from 34 menopause symptoms. And most symptoms can be attributed to only a few causes (hormone changes and effects of long term stress and bad habits).

So if you treat the underlying causes of the symptoms, your suffering will greatly diminish.

  3. Vaginal Dryness
  4. Irregular Cycle during peri menopause

How wide or narrow do YOU define menopause? (Leave us your thoughts at the bottom of this page.) If it matches the scientific definition as the cessation of ovulation, your list will be rather narrow. But if you are following thewisdom of the sisterhood, the list greatly explains your experience in your day to day struggle with the menopause transition – no matter what the scientists are saying.

We hope the list of the 34 symptoms will be helpful in several ways:

  • It helps you to understand that some of the weird things you are experiencing are (or could be) related to menopause. And in that regard the list can provide some peace of mind.
  • Some symptoms can also be a sign for a serious health condition, not just menopause, (i.e. hair loss as a sign of thyroid problems). So the list helps you to make the decisions to talk to your doctor.Now that you are familiar with the 34 menopause symptoms, you are probably interested in some treatment options.
