Night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood swings, concentration issues and more are most persistent.

Postmenopausal
When the symptoms of menopause decline, somewhere between 2 and 10 years after a period ceases, a women is said to be postmenopausal. This is a time when the symptoms of menopause are minimal.
