Menopause is the natural process of a slow hormonal adjustment affecting the function of the ovaries. Because of the sheer number of hormones and chemical messengers involved, it is a rather complicated process.
Menopause can be divided into 3 phases: premenopause, perimenopause and postmenopause. The point in life at which this process starts is highly individual. Genetic factors, physical features, daily habits and external factors play a viable role.
Premenopause is the phase where the ovaries are still active. Ovulation still takes place, but not as regularly as it used to. As a result, fertility decreases. The first symptoms can be circulatory problems, irregular cycles, mood swings, build-up of fluid or tender breast tissue.
During perimenopause, these symptoms climax. One reason for that is sinking estrogen levels. Menopause starts with one last spontaneous menstrual bleed. If no more bleeds follow for 12 months, menopause has started. This also puts an end to female fertility.
Statistically speaking, two thirds of all women going through menopause experience at least of the symptoms mentioned above. We are here for you every step of the way and help you find the perfect treatment to make your life easier.
