Menopause is a golden stage that every woman deserves to navigate through with much ease. Unfortunately, you may experience less desirable symptoms like insomnia, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness, limiting your sex life. Board-certified specialists of Ideal Gynecology use the latest testing and treatment options for symptoms resulting from menopause in McDonough and Atlanta, Georgia.
What is Menopause?
As part of the aging process, the female body releases fewer amounts of reproductive hormones. In due time, the ovaries gradually reduce the production of viable eggs to the point of not producing eggs altogether. Alteration of the hormones and hormone production brings the menstrual cycle to a standstill, resulting in menopause.
Before menopause, you may reach perimenopause in your mid to late forties. You may experience moodiness and hot flashes during perimenopause, extending for about five years before the official attainment of menopause.
On average, women enter menopause at age fifty-two, following the absence of periods for more than twelve consecutive months.
Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause symptoms are mainly associated with a constant decline of hormone levels in the female body. Unfortunately, you may experience a series of unpleasant symptoms right from perimenopause. Perimenopause is mainly associated with an irregular menstrual cycle appearing less frequently and further apart.
Perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal symptoms include;
- Hot flashes
- Breast tenderness
- Memory problems
- Fecal incontinence
- Urinary leakage
- Vaginal dryness
