This chapter deals with menopause-associated symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, and vaginal symptoms. Other symptoms that accompany the perimenopause transition but are related to other life events or aging, including sexual dysfunction and mood disturbances, are discussed. The options for managing these changes include menopause hormone therapy, both systemic and local, as well as complementary therapies and nonhormonal therapies for each of the symptoms.
