Menopause

Menopause is a natural life process which occurs when a woman’s reproductive hormones decline and usually occurs in the late 40s to early 50s.

Menopause is a normal part of ageing for a woman and literally means “last period”. It is generally considered to be complete when a woman has not had a period for one year. The time before menopause is referred to as perimenopause and the time after is called post menopause. During perimenopause, ovulation can become irregular due to lower oestrogen levels or the remaining follicles not being stimulated and this coincides with the emergence of symptoms.

Major symptoms include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Headaches
  • Atrophic vaginitis
  • Bladder infections
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Inability to concentrate
