Menopause is a normal condition which all women experience as they age. Marking the end of her fertility, menopause includes the changes in a woman body before or after she stops menstruating.
As per the stats, the average reported age of menopause worldwide is 50.
With the onset of menopause, which is followed by a transition phase, the female ovaries stop their regular function of producing the female hormones namely estrogen and progesterone.
Estrogen regulates the monthly periods throughout a females productivity cycle while the progesterone prepares the body for pregnancy. The production of these hormones starts declining from late 30’s. The lack of these hormones causes several mental, emotional and physical changes that can affect a women’s well-being and overall health.
The transition phase mentioned above is a gradual process whereby a women’s body starts showing menopause symptoms even before the actual menopause until a woman receives her final periods.
This phase is also known as perimenopause which covers the time around the menopause.
From there on starts the post-menopausal phase which covers the time after the menopause.
Menopause is simply a natural phase which occurs at the late 40’s and 60’s but as this includes certain hormonal changes, women undergo a metamorphosis like state which can bring significant changes to her body that carry over for the rest of her life and therefore she may need a homeopath’s consultation.
Normally, one should wait for 1 year to see if it’s a menopause but the below symptoms and signs can alert you beforehand so that you can consult a doctor and retain your health balance
A feeling of warmth in the face, neck, chest followed by irregularity in blood circulation.
These flashes usually occur to make your body cool by breaking you out for sweat and can last from 30 s to some minutes.
As noticed, some women may also report these flashes even before the actual symptoms of menopause.
There is no set analysis to detect when they will occur, but as seen their frequency decreases over time.
When you have trouble falling asleep, it may be one of the signs that you are heading for a menopause.
