Menopause is a natural biological process, which is also referred to as 'the change of life' as it marks the end of a woman's reproductive life. A women’s body undergoes many changes during this phase that no longer allow her to get pregnant as her periods (menstruation) eventually stop.
Signs and Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause, also known as ‘the change of life’, marks the end of the monthly cycle of menstruation in a woman’s life. It’s a roller coaster ride for women, where their body undergoes many changes due to the fluctuating hormone patterns that begin during the menopausal transition.
Diagnosis and Complications of Menopause
Although, the diagnosis of menopause can be made by a patient’s medical history and symptoms of menopause, laboratory testing is performed to confirm the same. A good diagnosis always considers many factors.
Management of Menopause
Menopause is a natural stage of life, not something that you must take medicine for. If your doctor says that you are in the menopausal transition and the symptoms are not bothering you, you don’t have to do anything about them.
Coping and support
Midlife in a women’s life is a time of change as menopause brings along many physical changes with emotional and social adjustments. Menopause is natural and inevitable, so take it as an opportunity to make healthy changes in your lifestyle, which will benefit you in the years that follow.
