Postmenopause normally begins after a span of 12 months has passed since the patient’s last menstrual cycle. Keep in mind that various symptoms that presented themselves during the perimenopause stage may continue through the duration of the menopause and postmenopause phase. So it is not unusual for women to experience night sweats, hot flashes, urinary problems, elevated heart rate, insomnia, mood changes, vaginal dryness, and other symptoms after menopause. So, if you start feeling anxious, depressed, or irritable, or have trouble getting sound sleep at night, you are probably feeling the aftereffects of menopause. You may even experience discomfort at the time of sexual intercourse. Moreover, decreased estrogen levels in your body makes your body more susceptible to osteopenia, osteoporosis, and heart disease.
