Menopause and Hormones

What is menopause?

  • Menopause describes the period of time in a woman’s life during which ovulation and menstruation begins to decline.
  • Menopause usually begins between the age of 45-55 and can last several years. As the levels of estrogen in the body decline changes in menstrual cycles and menopausal symptoms appear, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, sleep problems, vaginal dryness, anxiety, depression, and loss of libido. 
  • Menopause is considered complete after a woman’s cycle has been absent for at least 12 months when the ovaries no longer produce eggs and pregnancy is no longer possible. Usually this occurs at around 51 years of age.

What is perimenopause?

  • Perimenopause is the transition into menopause, or when menopause symptoms begin to appear.  Usually this starts at around age 47, however for some it can begin as early as age 35. Perimenopause symptoms can include: irregular periods, declining sex drive, heavy bleeding, weight gain, insomnia, dry eyes, hot flashes, vaginal changes, headaches, mood swings, hair loss and memory loss. 
  • Since these symptoms are similar to that of PMS it can be hard to tell if you are experiencing perimenopause. Typically though, PMS physical and emotional symptoms occur with your monthly cycle, even if they are mild. If for several months you do not notice these symptoms then you are likely in perimenopause. Keeping track of your symptoms for a few months can help make this distinction more clear to you.

Besides the onset of menopause, what other factors affect hormones?

  • Stress levels and our ability to manage them, exercise, nutrition, and environmental toxins all affect our hormones.
