Here is some information on postmenopause that you may find it helpful to read through. Your symptoms should decrease as you enter postmenopause -- which you are considered to be in after you have not had a period for a year. If you haven't had a period for 10 years and you are just beginning to experience these symptoms again, it may be a good idea to speak with your doctor about them. Please let us know what you find.
