Menopause

A woman has reached menopause when she has not had a menstrual period for a period of twelve months in a row and is unable to become pregnant by means of natural conception. It typically starts between the ages of 45 and 55, but it can start earlier or later than this age range.

The change in hormone levels that occur during menopause can result in uncomfortable symptoms, such as hot flashes and weight gain. Menopause is a natural transition that does not require treatment in the majority of cases.

Symptoms of Menopause

Every woman’s menopause experience is unique. When the menopause comes on suddenly or when it lasts for a shorter amount of time, the symptoms typically manifest in a more severe manner.

Conditions that have a negative impact on ovarian health, such as cancer or hysterectomy, as well as certain lifestyle choices, such as smoking, have a tendency to increase the severity of symptoms and the length of time they last.

The symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause are generally the same for the most part, with the exception of changes in menstruation. The following is a list of the most common early signs of perimenopause:

  • less frequent menstruation.
  • unusually heavy or light periods compared to what you’re used to experiencing.
  • Vasomotor symptoms (VMS) are common during menopause and include flushing, night sweats, and hot flashes.

It’s estimated that 75 percent of women go through menopause with experiencing hot flashes.
