Menopause

Updated: Feb 20, 2023



Menopause begins when the menstrual cycle finishes. Menopause isn't a medical ailment and some women even see it as a time of release. Changes in hormones and other factors, on the other hand, can cause discomfort.


Menopause is a change in lifestyle that occurs after you stop having your monthly period. It's a natural aspect of becoming older and signifies the end of your reproductive years. Menopause usually occurs in your late forties to early fifties. Humans who have their ovaries surgically removed, on the other hand, have "sudden" surgical menopause.


Menopause occurs for a variety of reasons.


As you get older, your reproductive cycle begins to slow down and prepare to halt. Since puberty, this cycle has been in constant operation. As menopause approaches, your ovaries produce much less estrogen. Your menstrual cycle (period) begins to vary as a result of this decrease. It may turn out to be abnormal, at which point they should cease. Physical changes can occur when your body adjusts to different hormone levels. The signs and symptoms you experience at various stages of menopause (premenopause, menopause, and postmenopause) are all part of your body's response to those changes.


It can last for years, and there are three stages:


  1. Perimenopause: This is a transitional period that begins before menopause and lasts for a year. It is the last year of a person's final duration.

  2. Menopause: This occurs 12 months after the last period ended or when menstruation has ceased for a medical reason, such as the removal of the ovaries.

  3. Postmenopause: Postmenopause refers to the years following menopause, however, it can be difficult to tell the difference between menopause and postmenopause.
