Melton Menopause Café Symptom Survey Results: Understanding and Managing the Journey


Menopause is a significant and natural phase in a woman's life, marked by various physical and emotional changes. It's a transition that affects each individual differently.


At the Melton Menopause Café, we recently conducted a survey to better understand the experiences of women going through menopause. We'd like to thank everyone who participated in our Melton Menopause Symptom Survey, and we're excited to share the top 10 reported symptoms and discuss ways to manage them.


The Top 10 Reported Menopause Symptoms:


1. 🧠 Memory Issues/Brain Fog:

Memory problems and brain fog can be frustrating symptoms of menopause. Strategies like maintaining a healthy lifestyle, staying mentally active, and seeking professional advice can help improve cognitive function.


2. 😴 Fatigue:

Fatigue is a common complaint during menopause. Prioritizing sleep, managing stress, and incorporating regular exercise into your routine can help combat this symptom.


3. 😠 Mood Swings:

Hormonal fluctuations can lead to mood swings. Practicing mindfulness, engaging in relaxation techniques, and seeking emotional support can help stabilize your mood.


4. 🤯 Difficulty Concentrating:

Difficulty concentrating is often linked to brain fog. Staying organized, breaking tasks into smaller steps, and practicing mindfulness can enhance your ability to focus.


5. 😴 Sleeping Issues:

Sleep disturbances can be disruptive. Creating a sleep-friendly environment, adhering to a sleep schedule, and avoiding caffeine and electronics before bedtime can promote better sleep.


6. 💔 Joint Pain:

Joint pain can impact daily life. Low-impact exercises, maintaining a healthy weight, and consulting a healthcare professional can help alleviate joint discomfort.


7. ❤️ Low/Loss Libido:

Changes in libido are common during menopause. Open communication with your partner, exploring intimacy, and consulting a healthcare provider can address this issue.


8. 🥵 Hot Sweats:

Hot flashes can be uncomfortable. Wearing breathable clothing, managing stress, and avoiding triggers like spicy foods can reduce the frequency and severity of hot sweats.


9. 😰 Anxiety:

Anxiety may increase during menopause. Techniques such as deep breathing, yoga, and seeking professional help can manage anxiety effectively.


10. 🌙 Night Sweats:

Night sweats can disrupt sleep. Maintaining a cool sleep environment, using moisture-wicking bedding, and managing stress can alleviate this symptom.


Support and Understanding:

It's crucial to remember that menopause is a unique journey for each individual. The symptoms can vary in intensity and duration. Support from loved ones, friends, or support groups can be invaluable during this time. Understanding and patience are key to navigating this phase successfully.


Looking Forward:

In the coming weeks, we will delve deeper into each of these symptoms, providing more in-depth insights and practical tips for managing them. We hope to empower you with the knowledge and resources needed to embrace this transformative period in your life with confidence.
