Q. I?m going through menopause and feel so stressed! Is this common?
Margery LS Gass, MD, NCMP posted:
A. Many women find the time around menopause stressful. This may be partially due to hormonal changes and resulting bothersome symptoms, including hot flashes and disrupted sleep. In addition, complex family and personal issues such as the demands of teenage children, aging parents, midlife spouses, and career changes often converge on women during these years.
