Can Affect Women in Their 70s and 80s
Most women in the U.S. typically experience menopause between the ages
of 45 and 55. Often referred to as “the change of life,” menopause is when
the menstrual cycle ends as the body produces less of the hormones estrogen
and progesterone. However, a Mayo Clinic study found that many women
experience hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, mood changes and other
menopause symptoms beyond mid-life and into their 60s, 70s and even their

The study involved roughly 5,000 women, a majority of whom said they
had menopause related symptoms long after what is considered the natural
menopause window. Researchers found that women 60 and older who
reported moderate to severe hot flashes were likely to be married or in a
committed relationship, they were also less likely to self-report their health
as “excellent.”
Caffeine appears to increase the chances of menopausal symptoms in
women over 70. In addition, the study found that women who used hormone
replacement therapy were less likely to report moderate or severe hot Kelsey-Seybold Clinic’s Kathy Sander,

menopause symptoms talk to their doctors

if individuals maintain an active lifestyle

alleviate hot flashes and other menopause
symptoms and also contribute to better
emotional health and mood. Dr. Kathy
