No not really, some women suffer badly, others just have minor symptoms that gradually fade over time. Usually about five or so years until they stop, but this depends on a lot of factors, the age you are when you begin menopause, any other health conditions etc.
Try not to think as menopause as a condition, more a state of being! If you are only having the odd minor symptom, then great, it is probably pretty much over and done with.
