Menopause. It’s an uncomfortable topic that women facing middle age don’t want to talk about, let alone face. Nonetheless, it’s a normal part of life and happens to every woman, therefore, it should be a topic we’re more comfortable talking about, both with our friends as well as our doctor.
What Is Menopause?
Menopause is defined as the point in time when menstrual cycles permanently cease, marking the end of your reproductive period. The age you experience it can vary, but it typically occurs in your late 40s or early 50s.
Menopause can cause many changes in your body. The symptoms are the result of a decreased production of estrogen and progesterone in your ovaries. Symptoms may include:
Increased Body Fat
Loss of Muscle Tone
Bladder control problems
Trouble Falling Asleep
Joint and muscle aches and pains
Changes in libido (sex drive)
Hormone replacement therapy for women can provide relief from the unpleasant daily symptoms of menopause, as well as the long-term health issues that many postmenopausal women face.
