Menopause, is the time in a woman’s life when her menstrual periods stop and she is no longer able to have children.This typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. At this point, estrogen levels have remained so low that the lining of the uterus is not stimulated to build up enough to shed and therefore periods no longer occur. This continued low level of estrogen is reflected in the lack of fluctuation between heavy bleeding, breast tenderness, no periods and shrinking breasts. These continued low levels can cause an increase in hot flushes (most women start to experience hot flushes in the perimenopause), difficulty concentrating, and memory problems. The loss of bone accelerates at this point and in the first five years after menopause a woman loses bone at a faster rate than at any time in her life. Other symptoms of the perimenopause may intensify, such as vaginal dryness, decreased libido, dry skin, and decreased mood and energy.While not typically needed the diagnosis can be confirmed by measuring hormone levels in the blood. Menopause occurs in all women.
