Health Tip: Is it Hot in Here or Is it 'The Change?'


(HealthDay News) -- A characteristic symptom of menopause is hot flashes, along with missing a menstrual period.

But those aren't the only signs; the American Academy of Family Physicians says additional signs of menopause include:

  • Any change in menstruation, such as heavier or lighter bleeding.
  • Vaginal dryness, which may result in painful intercourse.
  • Frequent urination or urinary tract infection.
  • Fatigue or difficulty sleeping.
  • Night sweats.
  • Persistent headaches.
  • Gaining weight.
  • Changes in mood.
