Menopause and MS

Menopause and MS

At some point between their late 40s and early 50s, most women will start to experience the first signs of menopause. During this life transition, estrogen levels in the body decline. Menstrual cycles become unpredictable and eventually stop.
While menopause can bring a welcome respite from your monthly periods, it can also usher in new symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and interrupted sleep. For women with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), it may be hard to tell the difference between symptoms of MS and signs of menopause.
Some women find their MS gets worse once their menstrual cycles end.

If you’re in your late 40s or early 50s and you have MS, it can be hard to tell whether you’re in menopause or you’re experiencing an MS flare. symptoms of the two conditions can look very similar.
symptoms common to both menopause and MS include:

If you’re not sure whether you’re entering menopause or your MS worsens, see a gynecologist. A blood test can check levels of estrogen and other hormones to confirm if you’re starting menopause.
