Is anxiety common in menopause? Studies show more than half of women aged 40 to 55 report occasional anxiety (or “nervousness”) and as much as a quarter of women report frequent anxiety. But there’s no need to suffer. Anxiety in menopause can be treated and managed.
We'll review your health history and listen to your symptoms.
Book a 30-minute telehealth appointment with a Gennev physician for consultation and screening. Every woman’s experience of menopause is as unique as she is. That’s why we’ll review your medical history, family history, and gynecological history prior to your telemedicine visit.
During the video visit, you'll share your experience with menopause, starting with your quality of life and other symptoms you're experiencing (stress, anxiety, brain fog, fatigue).

We will assess your nutritional needs to provide recommendations for a healthy, balanced diet and daily exercise. Our practitioners may also leverage cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and relaxation techniques to support symptoms of anxiety.

Perimenopause anxiety in the morning is no way to start your day, yet it's very common for women in perimenopause and menopause. Dr. Swapna Vaidya explains what's happening and how to get help.
Feelings of increased anxiety, depression, anger, rage, and panic are not uncommon for women to experience during the menopause transition. Estrogen and progesterone play a role in our brain chemistry, so as these hormones change, there can be downstream effects to the regulation of the brain chemicals which regulate mood and emotions. These hormonal shifts have a tendency to exacerbate underlying symptoms such as anxiety and depression that have existed previously, even if not as intense.
Menopause and mental health is becoming more and more important especially with world health concerns, the economy, plus the common increase in anxiety and depression. Our health coach team shares their best advice for managing increased anxiety.
Feeling stressed? It may be time to build your resiliency. Midlife and menopause are prime time for increased stress in women. Menopause symptoms like mood swings, hot flashes, and sleepless nights add to your stress level and drain your resources to cope with it. While the idea of stress-free living is an illusion, it’s worth the effort to protect your health by reining in your stress. Learn how to roll with the stress by becoming more resilient.
