Menopause is a naturally occurring stage in a women’s reproductive life, marked by the end of active & regular menstrual cycles. To have attained, a woman should have a cessation of menstrual cycles for 12 consecutive months. This typically tends to occur in the mid-40s of a women’s life and is completely normal, biological process.

Reaching menopause is associated with several symptoms which include – hot flushes, lower energy levels, and erratic emotional health. Women are also likely to see an altered sleeping pattern, possible weight gain, hormonal changes and other issues associated with the advent of menopause.

The cause of menopause is the natural decline of reproductive hormones in the women’s body. With advancing age, the body starts producing lower levels of estrogen and progesterone and it completely goes down by the time an individual hits menopause. However, certain conditions may advance the menopausal age.

Along with menopause, women are likely to experience several changes to their physical & emotional health. These include – urinary incontinence, heart disease, increased risk of osteoporosis, obesity, reduced sexual libido, and others.
Lifestyle modifications and emotional support are the most essential components of effectively managing menopausal disorders.
