Menopause symptoms are not just for midlife anymore, according to a new Mayo Clinic study published in May in the Journal of the North American Menopause Society. The study, conducted by researchers at Mayo Clinic gathered data from nearly 5,000 women. When asked whether they experienced any symptoms commonly associated with menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats (vasomotor symptoms), a significant percentage reported having them well into their 60s, 70s and 80s.
