Is Menopause at 50 Normal?
Although menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, it is not uncommon for women to experience it earlier or later in life. Approximately one in every 10 women will experience menopause before the age of 40. For a woman to reach menopause at age 50 is normal and, although it may be an unwelcome milestone, should not cause undue concern.
Menopause is defined as a period of 12 consecutive months without a menstrual cycle that occurs naturally or as the result of surgical procedures such as hysterectomy. It marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years and can be associated with various symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, anxiety and depression.
It is important to understand that menopause is not an illness but a natural physiological change that all women will experience during their lives. During this time, hormone levels fluctuate causing physical and emotional changes; however, there are many things a woman can do to reduce the impact these changes have on her life—from exercising regularly to making dietary changes to utilising supplements and/or prescription medications like hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
