It seems that women have to fight all their lives against some changes or other in their bodies. At puberty, they get breasts and ovaries start producing eggs - making girls start periods. This is a monthly discomfort that will stop only when she bears children which of course is a wonderful gift of nature, but a very painful one nonetheless. Then comes menopause where this whole fertility chapter gets closed.
The transition from fertile woman to post-menopausal woman is an extremely difficult one. The pre-menopause stage can last anything between two years and ten years and can mark some of the most challenging times in a woman’s life. There are a number of symptoms which will mark the onset of menopause, among which the hot flashes and night sweats are some of the worst.

Some medical researchers are of the opinion that menopause insomnia is actually the whole or at least part of the cause of most of these afflictions.
