Menopause

What is menopause?

menopauseMenopause (the climacteric, the change of life) is a natural event that happens to every woman. It marks the end of menstruation what is caused by weakening the hormonal function of the ovaries. We are dealing with the phenomenon when a woman past her forties doesn’t menstruate for 6 consecutive months.

Menopause usually occurs when a woman is approaching the age of 50 but the disorders connected with menopause may last for several years.

What is the course of menopause?

The signs of menopause are mainly connected with lower concentration of estradiol – a hormone which is one of the estrogens. A woman’s organism needs to switch from regular menstruation to lowered hormone production.

Adjusting to the hormonal changes may take a different course in every woman. The symptoms of menopause may appear even a few years before the last period. Some of the below mentioned symptoms are not experienced by some woman – it is a very individual matter. This is why the treatment needs to be established individually for every woman.

Menopause symptoms:

Remember that menopause is not a disease, but a natural biological process. Menopause isn’t something to be cured – the treatment lessens its unpleasant symptoms and helps to restore the hormonal balance disturbed by the climacteric. A doctor can advise a hormonal-replacement therapy, however not every woman can use it.
