    Hello everyone - it's good to read here that other people seem to be experiencing the psychological effects of menopause. I am experiencing anxiety and depression for the third time in the last seven years. I am now 54 and two years without a period. The first couple of times antidepressants really helped, along with Talk Therapy. But this time the antidepressants don't seem to be quite as effective. I'm also having counselling. I'd like to try herbal supplements, but am unsure whether they're OK with my medication. I too find that my anxiety is at its peak first thing in the morning and gradually reduces as the day goes on, until I feel completely normal again by the evening. Weekends are the worst when I don't have to get up for work. I find it almost impossible to drag myself out of bed and then the anxiety lasts all day. I don't even know whether my mental health issues are caused by the menopause. My GP and counsellor keep telling me it isn't the cause. It just makes things worse for me, but I always used to be such a happy, optimistic person! Now I get an anxiety surge just thinking about feeding the family, food shopping or family outings!

    Will this anxiety go away when my body adjusts to lower hormones? And how long does this take? I have had horrible anxiety and depression for nearly 2 years now. I am 50 years old. I had severe post partum depression with anxiety after each of my children were born that lasted 8 months for each.

      Hi Julie Most women find that their menopause symptoms start to ease off a few years after their periods have stopped but this can depend on a lot of things such as lifestyle, diet and general stress levels. The fact that you seem very sensitive to hormonal changes may mean that it could take a little longer for you, but... please don't despair, looking after yourself well, getting plenty of rest and relaxation and supporting your nervous system can often work well. You may find taking the herb Maca can help to ease the anxiety and reduce the depression, this should be OK even if you are on antidepressants. Go for a liquid one as this will work quicker, powders and tablets won't work as well. Acupuncture can often be effective in this situation so worth looking into and you could also check out EFT or NLP as these can reach you how to be more in control.

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
