Menopause & Women's Health

Menopause is the time in a women’s menstrual cycle when the ovaries stop releasing eggs and her periods cease. During this time a woman may experience some unpleasant symptoms including hot flushes, night sweats and emotional changes.

What is Menopause?

Menopause is a natural life event when menstruation and fertility ceases for a women. Her regular period may stop all of a sudden or become less frequent until it eventually ceases. Menopause can typically happen between the ages of 45 and 55, but under the age of 45 is known as premature menopause. After a woman has stopped having periods for 6 months or more, the menopause stage has been completed.

Causes & Symptoms

Menopause is caused by the reduction of the ovaries manufacturing the hormones oestrogen and progesterone. This change of hormone balance causes a number of physical and psychological changes to woman and symptoms could include:

  • Reduction in the monthly period - this is often the first sign.
  • Hot flushes.
  • Night sweats.
  • Mood changes such as irritability, tearfulness and anxiety.
  • Needing to urinate more frequently.
  • Loss of interest in sex.

Symptoms in some cases may start many years before menopause.

Menopause & Health Risks

During and after the menopause, maintenance of a women’s health becomes ever more important, as the reduction in hormones may cause some health changes including:

  • Bone mass reduction putting her at risk of osteoporosis.
  • Increased fats in the blood increasing the risk of heart disease.
  • Vaginal dryness making intercourse more difficult.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is an option for some women, but others may find that natural therapies can also provide relief from the symptoms of menopause.
