Menopause is the stage of life when women’s periods begin to end. People frequently mix menopause with other conditions.
So here’s how it’s spelled out: Menopause occurs when a woman’s menstrual periods come to an end and she has gone 12 months without having a period. The average age at which this occurs is 51 years old, however it might occur sooner or later. Some women have early menopause, which means their periods end before they turn 40 years old, while others have late menopause, which lasts until they are 55 years old.
Symptoms of Menopause
For some, the process is straightforward, while for others, it is really difficult. Menopausal symptoms can cause sleep disturbances, sex pain, hot flashes, aching breasts, more frequent peeing, vaginal dryness, missed or irregular periods, and emotional changes such as mood swings, anger, and sadness in some women.
Fatigue, weight gain, a decrease in libido, headaches, joint and muscle discomfort, a racing heart, and hair loss are just a few of the serious symptoms. To reduce severe symptoms, a change in lifestyle, medication, and doctor’s treatment are required.
Premature menopause can occur in addition to natural menopause in certain circumstances. Premature menopause can be caused by a genetic or immune system problem, or by a medical procedure. Ovarian failure occurs when the ovaries fail to release the eggs in a timely manner. In some situations, doctors induce menopause for medical reasons such as uterine cancer or endometriosis. It can also be induced if the ovary is damaged by chemotherapy or radiation.
