Oestrogen and progesterone control the menstrual cycle, and are produced in lower quantities until periods stop altogether. Other hormones including follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone are produced in higher quantities giving rise to unwanted symptoms, such as hot-flushes and night sweats. Other symptoms may include mood swings, depression, irritability, fatigue, panic attacks, palpitations, dryness, muscle and bone pain and sometimes weight gain.
