A recent study published by the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) found that the effects of menopause, specifically night sweats and hot flashes, last on average seven years, with some women suffering as long as fourteen years. The study is one of very few to look at the affect menopause has on women beyond short-term changes, and brought to light many shocking truths about menopause that alter how doctors treat patients’ menopause symptoms.
According to the article, women who begin to demonstrate symptoms of menopause while still having their periods tended to experience symptoms for longer, suffering for twelve years compared to only three for those who started experiencing symptoms after their final menstrual period. Additionally, race plays an important role in menopausal symptoms, as African-American women experienced symptoms for longer than any other demographic.
