Do I simply need to learn to live with the menopause?

Going through the menopause is a fact of life for all women. For many fortunate women, the transition will be smooth; however, for others, the menopause will present a challenge of varying degrees. Menopausal symptoms include hot flushes, mood swings, a loss of libido, fatigue, night sweats and depression. Just as each woman experiences her own set of menopausal symptoms, some mild, some severe, each woman responds uniquely to the treatment prescribed – but there are many options for post-menopausal women.
