Menopause is a stage in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone and she stops having her monthly menstrual cycle (her period).

Anxiety and even panic attacks may be symptoms of a number of hormonal changes or problems in women, including premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), perimenopause, and menopause.

When menopause occurs before the age of 40 years, it is termed as premature menopause and requires proper medications.

At the time of menopause, the entire chain of endocrine glands is affected, particularly, the gonads, thyroid, and pituitary glands.

Other symptoms are fatigue, palpitations, dizziness, headaches, and numbness.
