Menopause affects every woman differently. Recent studies suggest that women who are overweight or obese, are African-American, or who smoke may get more severe symptoms or symptoms that last longer than other women.1 But, some women have no symptoms or their symptoms are very mild. Other women get symptoms that affect several areas of their lives. It’s not always possible to tell whether these changes are related to aging, menopause, or both.
