Menopause is the opposite term of menarche, the time at which a girl’s menses start. It, also known as the climacteric, is the time period in the life of females when menstrual periods stop permanently, and they are no longer able to have children. Menopause typically occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. Medical experts often consider menopause as a condition when a woman had not undergone any vaginal bleeding for a year. It can also be defined as a decrease in hormone production by the ovaries in those who have had surgery to remove their uterus but they still have ovaries. Menopause may be viewed to have occurred at the time of the surgery or when their hormone levels fell. Following the removal of the uterus, symptoms typically occur earlier, at an average of 45 years of age.
Before menopause, a woman’s periods typically become irregular, which means that periods may be longer or shorter in duration, or be lighter or heavier in terms of the amount of flow. During this time, women often experience hot flashes which typically last from 30 seconds to 10 minutes, and may be associated with trembling, sweating and reddening of the skin. Other symptoms may include vaginal dryness, trouble sleeping, and mood swings. The harshness of symptoms varies among women. While menopause is often considered to be linked to an increase in heart disease, which primarily occurs due to increase of age and does not have a direct relationship with menopause. In some women, problems that were previously present like endometriosis or painful periods will improve after menopause.
Menopause is usually a natural change but it can also occur earlier in those women who smoke tobacco. Other causes include surgery that removes both ovaries, or some types of chemotherapy. At the physiological level, menopause happens due to decrease in the production of hormones— estrogen and progesterone. Hence a diagnosis of menopause can be confirmed by measuring hormone levels in either the blood or urine.
Specific treatment is not usually needed. Some symptoms, however, may be improved with Ayurveda treatment. Exercise may help with sleeping problems. While MHT was once routinely prescribed, it is now only recommended in those with significant symptoms, as there are concerns about side effects. The effectiveness of alternative medicine has been found.
