Approximately 40-60% of women going through menopause AND perimenopause experience mood swings. They can significantly impact emotional well-being and quality of life.
The most effective treatment for mood swings during menopause and perimenopause include restoring hormonal balance with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Non-hormonal approaches like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), stress reduction techniques, regular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle can also help manage mood swings.
On average, 60-80% of women report a reduction in symptoms after two months of HRT or non-hormonal approaches like CBT and lifestyle modifications.
