Menopause is the natural process a woman’s body goes through as she ages. It typically begins between the ages of 40 to 58, when her menstrual periods become less frequent and eventually stop. At this point, her ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone.
Although menopausal symptoms can be frustrating and uncomfortable for some women, they do not necessarily cause long-term health problems. However, there are certain risks associated with menopause that should be taken into consideration. These include an increased risk of osteoporosis (thinning bones), heart disease and stroke due to reduced levels of estrogen in the body leading to changes in cholesterol levels; an increased risk of urinary incontinence; and an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease if menopausal symptoms last a long period time (10 years or more).
There are several ways you can help manage your symptoms so you can remain healthy during this time in your life. Some tips include eating a healthy diet which is low in saturated fats and cholesterol; taking part in regular physical activity; getting adequate rest & sleep; quitting smoking; and cutting down on caffeine intake & alcohol consumption (in moderation). In addition, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is often prescribed for women going through menopause as it helps replace lost hormones which can drastically reduce many unpleasant symptoms associated with this stage.
