Our body changes throughout the life. And a female body experiences changes twice in their life.
Yes, you guessed it right! We are talking about the menstruation and menopause transition women undergo. The unheard and least discussed among these two is the “END” of menstruation and the “START” of menopause. Hear us out; it’s not as simple as it looks like.
The body demands a lot of care and understanding during both the prospects, but the symptoms are overlooked. The question here arises, that do we even know what the symptoms are? No, because we never tried to learn about it. Often we do not know when and what happens during this transition.
Therefore, reduction of estrogens and progesterone from a female body between the age of 38-55 leads to the end of menstruation and beginning of menopause. This transition takes about four years and sometimes even more. During this, the ovaries stop releasing eggs. In short this marks as the end of woman fertility. Having said this, it is not a disease or condition, but a natural process which can be treated according to the symptoms. The whole transition affects the mental, emotional and physical behaviour of women.
The indications include, depression; anxiousness; migraine and headache; sleepless nights; breakthrough bleeding; irregular cycles; loss of libido; mood swings; sore breast; vaginal dryness etc. Not only this, women are at increased risk for a number of health conditions like PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and ovary cancer.
But every problem has a solution if taken care of, at the right time.
- Regular check-up from a gynaecologist.
- Immediate action towards any unusual symptoms can reduce the risk of life threatening disease.
- Proper medication and Oral hormone therapy can also be used in special circumstances to balance the level of estrogens.
Talk about it to learn about it. Be the citizen of civilized society and aware about the reverse puberty of a woman.
