What is Menopause

Menopause is also known as "climacteric" and is usually a naturally occurring change in all women. It is the time at which your menstrual cycle ends.

Menopause is said to be attained when you have one year of no periods. It is typically seen between the age group of 49-52 years.

What are the Causes of Menopause

Menopause occurs due to the cessation of production of hormones by the ovaries. For the women who have their uterus removed with their ovaries left behind, menopause may occur a few years after surgery.

Menopause can also be caused by removing ovaries.

Menopause also occurs due to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which is called artificial menopause.

What are the Symptoms of Menopause

A women's period might become irregular before menopause. Women often experience hot flashes, which last for 30 seconds to ten minutes with sweating.

Other common symptoms may include:

  • Dryness in the vagina
  • Difficulty in sleeping
  • Mood swings.

The intensity of symptoms varies between women. Postmenopause symptoms may appear to include:

  • Atrophic vaginitis
  • Joint stiffness, soreness, and back pain
  • Interrupted sleep cycle.
  • Heavy hot flashes and night sweats

Postmenopause also includes psychological symptoms such as

  • Poor memory

How is Menopause Disgnosed ?

Signs and symptoms are usually enough to diagnose menopause. However, in some cases, your doctor may recommend you to get specific blood tests done to test the level of your hormones (FSH-Follicle stimulating hormone, Thyroid-stimulating hormone)
