Menopause and Anxiety—How the Two are Connected

 

Menopause begins to occur a year after your periods end and many women report feeling some form of anxiety during this time in their life

 

Changes in hormones and body types; infertility; concerns about aging; and children growing up and leaving the home are some of the other events happening in women’s lives as menopause begins.

 

Needless to say, there may be a lot happening in your life when menopause hits and feeling anxiety is perfectly normal.

 

Certain hormone treatments may be the appropriate path for some women, while antidepressants are more suitable for others.
