What is postmenopause?

The time of a woman's life following menopause is called postmenopause. At this time symptoms experienced with menopause lessen and/or completely resolve.

Common symptoms reported by people with postmenopause

Common symptoms
How bad it is
What people are taking for it

Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.
