Menopause, like other natural changes in the female body, still seems to be hidden in shame in our society. This leads to misconceptions that can negatively impact our lives and put an additional strain on our experience.
What is Menopause?
We’ve all heard of menopause, but not many people have a good understanding of what our bodies go through
Menopause typically occurs in the late 40s to early 50s. However, if a woman is to have a hysterectomy, they will experience sudden surgical menopause.
Menopause is a hormonal change that all women will experience in their lifetime, it’s simply a part of ageing. Menopause is the stage in life when you stop having your monthly period, and therefore marking the end of your reproductive years. It is a result of decreased production of oestrogen and progesterone in your ovaries.
What are the Stages of Menopause?
What are the Key Symptoms of Menopause?
There are a lot of functions that are affected by the dramatic change in hormone production. During the stages of menopause symptoms may include hot flushes, weight gain and vaginal dryness. The lack of oestrogen makes the vagina and surrounding area weaker, thinner and easily irritated. For many women this not only makes intercourse painful but also leads to distressing urinary symptoms.
After menopause women who are not using hormone therapy can suffer from inflammation of the vagina including redness and vaginal discharge. In fact, this condition (vaginal atrophy) can result from anything that lowers oestrogen production. Such as chemotherapy, radiation, removal of the ovaries during hysterectomy, and the use of drugs which are used to treat fibroids and endometriosis.
