You may be suffering from a number of symptoms associated with the menopause. Physically a woman may experience hot flushes, night sweats, loss of energy, and infrequent periods (sometimes the periods actually get heavier near the menopause). Other symptoms include insomnia, loss of concentration, decreased libido and vaginal dryness. Prolapse may become apparent around the time of the menopause as oestrogen levels drop. Each woman reacts to the menopause differently, from no symptoms at all to the unfortunate women who suffer virtually all the symptoms described above. This is why treatment must be tailored to the individual needs of the woman so as to ensure she has the optimum quality of life, rather than being drawn into polarised camps for and against the use of Hormone Replacement Therapy
