What is menopause?

Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman's menstrual cycles. It typically occurs in women in their late 40s to early 50s, although the exact timing can vary. Menopause is diagnosed after a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period.  Menopause is a normal part of ageing and is not usually a cause for concern.

However, the symptoms associated with menopause can be challenging for some women. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and other medications may be prescribed to help manage symptoms and reduce the risk of certain health conditions associated with menopause, such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

Menopause Symptoms

Menopause symptoms can have a detrimental impact on your daily life, including your personal relationships, work life, social life, and family commitments. Menopause symptoms can feel different for everyone and can differ from individual to individual.

Symptoms usually start months or even years before your periods stop. This is commonly referred to as the perimenopause.

Common symptoms

Menopause can affect you from head to toe. A lot of a woman’s organs are oestrogen sensitive which is why you can be affected in so many different ways.

A lot of women experience the symptoms during the perimenopause (the years leading up to the menopause.)

Some of the most common symptoms include

  • Changes to your periods - One of the most prominent signs of the menopause is when you start to experience irregular periods for a considerable period of time. For example, you notice that they become irregular.
  • Mental health symptoms - You may notice considerable changes, especially in your daily mood. For example, you may notice regular mood swings, increased anxiety, and problems with memory or concentration levels.
  • Mental health symptoms - You may notice considerable changes, especially in your daily mood. For example, you may notice regular mood swings, increased anxiety, and problems with memory or concentration levels.
  • Physical symptoms - Hot flushes are incredibly common with the menopause which can make you feel dizzy. Further physical symptoms may also include weight gain, recurring headaches, muscle aches, joint pains, and difficulty sleeping.

Important note: Remember the below symptoms are not exhaustive and you do not need to have all the symptoms to seek help.

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not within the expected age bracket of 45-55. Can I still experience menopause?

Yes, it's possible for women to experience menopause outside the typical age bracket of 45-55. While the average age for menopause is around 51, it can occur earlier or later for various reasons. Some women experience menopause before the age of 45, which is referred to as early menopause. This can happen due to factors such as genetics and certain medical conditions.

What lifestyle changes can help manage menopause symptoms?

It's true that there are certain lifestyle changes that you can make that may make a difference in reducing menopausal symptoms. For example, at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week can help to reduce the symptoms of hot flushes. Further lifestyle changes that may be considered include the promotion of stress management, adopting a healthy diet, quitting or significantly reducing smoking, and getting adequate sleep. Herbal remedies such as black cohosh and St John’s wort can also help with the hot flashes in some women. It is important that you get those products that have a traditional herbal registration number and buy them from a reputable source.
