Menopause is a normal, natural event—defined as the final menstrual period and usually confirmed when a woman has missed her periods for 12 consecutive months (in the absence of other obvious causes). Menopause is associated with reduced functioning of the ovaries due to aging, resulting in lower levels of estrogen and other hormones. It marks the permanent end of fertility. Menopause occurs, on average, at age 51. It occurs most often between ages 45 and 55.
Each woman’s menopause experience is different. Many women who undergo natural menopause report no physical changes at all during the perimenopausal years except irregular menstrual periods that eventually stop when they reach menopause. Other changes may include hot flashes, difficulty sleeping, memory problems, mood disturbances, vaginal dryness, and weight gain. Not all these changes are hormone-related, and some, such as hot flashes and memory problems, tend to resolve after menopause. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle during this time of transition is essential for your health and can even prevent or blunt some of these changes
Induced menopause refers to menstrual periods which stop after surgical removal of the ovaries, chemotherapy or radiation damage to the ovaries, or from the use of other medications to intentionally induce menopause as part of the treatment of certain diseases. Women who have induced menopause experience the hot flashes, vaginal dryness, trouble sleeping and other symptoms of menopause, but without the gradual onset of a natural menopause
It is common in perimenopause to be given medications to regulate cycles and a common medication given is the lower dose birth control pill. Compared to regular birth control pills, the lower dose of estrogen in very-low-dose pills may be safer for perimenopausal women. (Perimenopause typically begins several years before your final period.) While regular birth control pills contain 30 to 50 micrograms of estrogen, these low-dose pills contain only 0.1 to 0.35 micrograms and can be increased as needed.
While hot flashes (or flushes) are very common in perimenopause, not all women experience them, and not all flashes are of the same intensity. Hot flashes can be as mild as a light blush or severe enough to wake you from a sound sleep and be associated with perspiration (called night sweats). Most hot flashes last 30 seconds to five minutes. They usually disappear within a few years after menopause, but in some women, they can continue for decades.
It is recommended that you keep your bedroom to about 65 degrees. Keep it cool and comfortable. Avoid caffeine and spicy foods. Also, keep in mind that not all hot flashes are caused by menopause; they can happen as a result of thyroid disorders and other conditions or other medications. So, it’s really important to get evaluated.
Natural or bioidentical supplements containing compounds that act like estrogens — such as soybeans or wild yams — may provide some of the benefits of estrogen in relieving menopausal symptoms. They commonly include estradiol, estrone, estriol, progesterone, testosterone, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). These products are notregulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA and the dose of hormones can vary from batch to batch.Other botanicals, including black cohosh, have shown some promise for reducing menopausal sweats, or hot flashes. You should always check with your doctor before using any of these supplements.
Avoid triggers, such as:
Spicy foods, Alcohol, Caffeine, Stress.
Keep a fan in your home or workplace and try taking slow, deep breaths when you feel a hot flash starting.
Getting enough sleep and staying physically active may help prevent mood swings. You can also try learning new ways to deal with stress, like meditating or journaling.
If you need somebody to talk to, consider joining a support group or seeing a therapist.
For females with a uterus, HT involves the hormones estrogen and a progestogen. Women who don’t have a uterus anymore use estrogen alone. Most of the estrogen prescribed is bioidentical estradiol and is delivered through the skin to improve safety. HT can be very good at relieving moderate to severe menopausal symptoms and preventing hip fractures. However, HT isn’t for everybody. A professional will perform an individual risk assessment and counsel you on how to reduce the risk of blood clots, heart attack, stroke, breast cancer, and gallbladder disease, which can be associated with HT.
You should not take HT if you:
