The transition to menopause is associated with various symptoms that may affect the quality of life. Vasomotor symptoms, or hot flashes and night sweats, occur in up to 80% of women and are the most common menopause-related complaints for which women seek medical treatment, according to Lugo and colleagues. Hot flashes are often associated with sweating, chills, headaches, fatigues, faintness, and anxiety, which can be triggered by warm environments or emotional stress.
Other symptoms of menopause include:
Poor sleep quality
