What happens to a woman's body during menopause?

Written by Abigail Walker - February 15, 2023

What Is Menopause?

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.

What Are The Symptoms Of Menopause?

  • Hot flashes: sudden feeling of intense warmth, usually accompanied by sweating and reddening of skin on face, neck, and chest.
  • Night sweats: similar to hot flashes but occurring during sleep.
  • Mood swings: sudden changes in mood for no apparent reason.
  • Irregular periods: periods may come sooner or later, be heavier or lighter than before, or completely stop coming at all.
  • Vaginal dryness: thinning walls of vagina due lack of lubrication can lead to pain during intercourse.
  • Difficulty sleeping: night sweats or an inability to fall asleep may occur due to hormonal imbalances.
  • Weight gain: hormone imbalances caused by menopause can lead to increased fat storage around the abdomen and hips, even after altering diet and exercise habits.

Health Risks of Menopause

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).

How To Manage The Symptoms Of Menopause

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.
