Menopause Treatment

Menopause is the natural body process which ceases fertility in the female body. It usually occurs between the ages of 40-50, but the exact age can vary from woman to woman.

Levels of estrogen and progesterone change during perimenopause and menopause which causes a variety of symptoms. During perimenopause your period becomes irregular and unpredictable. This can last up to 6 years at around the age of 40. You are considered to officially have menopause after experiencing the absence of a monthly menstrual cycle for 12 consecutive months.

Symptoms May Include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Bone loss and osteoporosis
  • Insomnia and sleep problems
  • Mood swings
  • High cholesterol
  • Problems concentrating
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Breast tenderness
