A. Menopause symptoms are caused due to rapid decline in hormonal levels- especially estrogen. You should expect to experience a variety of symptoms, that may be unpleasant such as hot flashes, palpitations, night sweats, vaginal atrophy (drying), skin drying, slight decrease in sexual drive, mood changes, urgency in urination and more. Not all women have these symptoms, and usually woman don't have all the symptoms.
