Increased risk of infections

It is common to experience urinary tract infections (UTIs) during menopause; try to ensure you drink plenty of fluids and maintain good personal hygiene. If you have symptoms of an infection, such as cystitis, see your doctor. Signs to look out for include pain when you urinate, itchiness or irritation, abnormal discharge and generally feeling unwell.

The menopause can also contribute to many other symptoms, which are less common than those listed above; some examples include:

  • hair loss
  • tiredness
  • dizziness
  • changes in appetite and weight gain
  • aches and pains in the joints
  • headaches
  • difficulty remembering things
  • anxiety
  • insomnia
